|Three kaya Vajrasattva
(tib. rdorje sems pa)
Vajrasattva is a supreme Buddhist deity who embodies the purity of the enlightened mind. Vajrasttva means
"Diamond Being" in Sanskrit. In Vajrayana buddhism, the principle of purity and purification.
Vajrasattva embodies the capacity to eliminate spiritual impurities of all kinds, particularly neglected commitments
toward one's teacher and one's own spiritual development.
Vajrasattva is a sambhogakaya manifestation; he unifies all the five
buddha-families within himself in the same way that the white colour of
his body unifies all the five colors. With his right hand he holds a Dorje
to his heart, which signifies his indestructible essence. His left hand,
holds a bell, rests on his hip; this is an expression of his compassion.
The hundred-syllable mantra associated with him is used in all schools of
Tibetan Buddhism for purification of the mind.
