Chakrasamvara is one of the important tantric meditational deities, who belongs to the Heruka family of the Anuttara Yoga Tantra. Following his meditational path will lead the practitioner to the bliss of supreme enlightenment. He is shown here in embrace with his consort Vajravarahi. This signifies the fusion of the two coefficients of salvation – 'means' and 'wisdom'. Means is the compassion or the active element – when it has attained a particular efficacy it permeates the most vital parts of the body. During union with 'mother', the 'moon' the thought of illumination seated in the head, melts and permeates the whole body. From it proceeds the 'great bliss' of the means which symbolizes meditation on four fundamentals of liberation which have as their object the insubstantiality of All, identified with mystical wisdom.

He is two-armed and one faced. Both arms are crossed around the waist of his consort in vajra-humkara-mudra. The vajraand ghanta in the hands symbolize that he is union of illumination and compassion, the bodhi-citta of insubstantiality and compassion, and the embrace means (upaya) and transcendental wisdom (prajna).

Both the figures are brilliantly painted. His (Chakrasamvara) double topknot has a container and a jewel on top. He wears Heruka ornaments consisting of earrings, necklaces, and bracelets; scarves and a tiger-skin skirt. Moreover, he wears a five-skull crown, and a garland of freshly severed human heads. His right leg is extended, and the left knee bent. There is a wisdom flame aureole behind the main figures.

The consort of Chakrasamvara has one face with three eyes and two arms. She is naked with disheveled hair because she has been set free from the illusions that hide the essence of things. Her right leg is wrapped around his waist and her left leg is extended along his. She holds a vajra-marked chopper in her right hand and behind his neck a skull-bowl filled with demon's blood in her left hand.

In the luminous sky Akshobhya Buddha is seated in the center. The four wrathful dakinis are depicted at each corner in orange, red, blue, and green colors, respectively. All the four dakinis hold the chopper, skull cup, and khatvanga. They are dancing on their lotus thrones.

On the left side of the middle ground, a roaring snow lion has been depicted near a cave, while on the right side a ferocious tiger is present. The tiger is depicted as if it is going to attack the innocent sheep standing before it The middle and foregrounds depict beautiful mountainous landscape, high peaks, plants, mountains covered with snow, tree, flower, lake, and natural vegetation.

This description by Dr. Shailendra Kumar Verma, Ph.D. His doctorate thesis being on the "Emergence and Evolution of the Buddha Image (from its inception to 8th century A.D)."

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
