- His name Samantabhadra in Sanskrit or Kuntuzangpo in Tibetan, means ‘always good', ‘always well’ or ‘unchanging goodness.’ The significance is that unchanging or fundamental goodness is our ultimate nature.
- He is pictured in the Yab-Yum (mother-father) sacred embrace with his consort
- 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. Together they symbolize the divine union of compassion with wisdom.
- He is considered a primordial Adi-Buddha, or "first seed of Buddhahood" representing the Dharmakaya (truth body of enlightenment) according to the Nyingma Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism
- “Samantabhadra is not subject to limits of time, place, or physical conditions. Samantabhadra is not a colored being with two eyes, etc. Samantabhadra is the unity of awareness and emptiness, the unity of appearances and emptiness, the nature of mind, natural clarity with unceasing compassion - that is Samantabhadra from the very beginning”
