HERUKA VAJRASATTVA (Tib. Dorje Sempa Yum Che)
Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification embraces his consort Vajramamani indicating that purification practice leads to the ultimate experience of bliss. In his right hand he holds the vajra, symbolic of spiritual awakening and the method aspect of the path to enlightenment. In his left, he holds the bell, symbolic of the penetrative insight into the ultimate nature of reality.
