Vajrasattva with Consort
Keeping Vajrasattva Thangka at home will help to purify bad karma and to generate wisdom.
Vajrasattva is called the all pervasive sovereign of both the outer and inner
tantras. He is also known as the Lord of the Body, Speech, Mind, Qualities and Activities of all the Buddhhism. Vajrasattva is the supreme embodiment of the whole tantric mandala and lord of all the Buddha families. The Buddha families display the aspects of primordial wisdom which pervade the world in every direction. The major radiations are known as the five wisdoms, which are symbolized by the five Buddha families.
Visualize Vajrasattva in union with his wisdom Consort, who is known as Dorje Nyema in Tibetan or Vajra Garvi in Sanskrit. In his right hand, he holds a vajra vertically at the level of his heart center.His left hand is leaning on his hip and holding an upside-down bell. Dorje Nyema is the same color as
Vajrasattva and she also have one face, two arms, and two legs. Both of them wear
sambhogakaya ornamentation. Her right hand holds a curved knife and in her left is a
Skull cup filled with wisdom nectar. Her left arm embraces Vajrasattva around his neck.
Both are in the primordial state of great blissfulness, radiating the light of wisdom, compassion, love, and peace to beings in all directions. This bliss helps magnetize our power of concentration and deepens our feelings of devotion to the teacher, the teachings, and all sentient beings.
The Mantra of Vajrasattva with Consort is:
CHI WOR LAMA DOR SEM YER MED PE
KU LE DUD TSII GYUN BAB DRIB JANG GYUR
In English Above the crown of my head is Vajrasattva, Inseparable from the lama. From Vajrasattva's body a nectar stream descends, purifying my obscurations.
