This harmonious statue depicts Buddha and Shakti in intimate embrace. Their union evokes balance between the active, masculine figure of compassion (karuna) and skillful method (upaya), and the passive, feminine figure of wisdom (prajna). According to Tibetan Buddhism, these qualities are essential to attain enlightenment by seeing beyond the veils of illusion (maya).
