Vajradhara (Tib: Dorje Chang) translates to "Vajra Holder" in English. As a manifestation of primordial Buddha, personification of the dharmakaya - truth body of enlightenment, Vajradhara embodies the source of the Buddha families. The bell in his left hand represents wisdom and the vajra in his right represents the method of compassion. His arms are crossed to signify the union of wisdom and compassion. His blue body is the sky-like nature of our own minds reflected in visual form. He is embracing his consort in yabyum.
