VAJRASATWA (DORJE SEMPA)
Vajrasatwa, the sixth Dhyani
Buddha, is regatded by the Nepali Buddhist as the priest of the Five Dhyani
Buddha. He is not represented in the stupa like other Dhyani Buddhas, but
independent shrines are dedicated to his worship. His worship is always
performed in secret and is not open to those who are not initiated into the
mysteries of the Vajrayana. Vajrasattwa is represented in two forms, single
and yabyum. This Dhyani Buddha wears all ornaments, rich dress and a crown.
He is of white colour. He sits cross legged in the meditative pose like
other Dhyani Buddhas. He carries the vajra in his right hand with palm
upwards against the chest and ghanta (bell) in the left hand resting upon
the left thigh.
