  • The Buddha and his consort are represented in a mystical Tantric union that brings together the two primordial and harmonious aspects of the universe
  • He is the light blue color of the sky representing the pure state of the mind which is vast and empty, while still including all of existence. She is white, representing pure mental clarity
  • Samantabhadra is considered in some schools of Tibetan Buddhism to be a cosmic primordial Buddha in indivisible yab-yum union with his consort Samantabhadri
  • Samantabhadra in Sanskrit, means ‘always good', ‘always well’ or ‘unchanging goodness.’ The significance is that unchanging or fundamental goodness is our ultimate nature
  • He and his consort are completely naked, meaning unobstructed by any trace of concept
  • In Tibetan Buddhist cosmology, the male energy represents the method of Karuṇā or compassion, while the female energy symbolizes Prajñā or spiritual insight. The union of these two divine energies obliterates the illusion of duality and brings us back to the original state of oneness in pure enlightened ecstasy
