    He is called Vajradhara. Tantric schools consider him to be the Primordial Buddha ‰ÛÒ eternal, boundless and wise beyond human comprehension. Appropriately, paintings of Samantabhadra feature him in the nude with a deep blue body, suggestive of the limitless sky. Entwined around him is the white figure of Samantabhadri, his consort and the embodiment of the Great Mother. Their union is termed as yab-yum in Tibetan Buddhism, where the active, masculine figure represents karuna (compassion) and upaya (skilful method) and the passive, feminine form represents prajna (wisdom). These qualities are essential to attain enlightenment by seeing beyond the veils of illusion (Maya). This statue measures 8.25 inches tall and weighs 2.5 pounds. Some slight variation in finish color or texture is natural and represents the organic process behind each piece of art‰Ûªs individual creation.
