Vajradhara or Dorje Chang represents the Primordial Buddha – the supreme essence of all Buddhas and source of the five Buddha families. He has his hands crossed at his heart, holding a bell and vajra. Together they symbolise the union of wisdom and compassion - an essential combination for those who wish to attain enlightenment. His crown and ornaments are fitted with a number of turquiose settings. The base is still sealed and incised with a double dorje.
