Atrubutes of this Deity: The union of male and female so prevalent in Tantric Buddhist iconography expresses it´s mastery over the world. Vajra is a symbol of the indestructible nature of the ultimate truth. In this sense, the term Vajra is often explained as synonymous to emptiness which is indestructible. The Vajra is said to be superior to all things in that while it is capable of destroying anything with which it comes into contact, it, like a diamond, remains unaffected.
The sword is a symbol of the wisdom of discrimination which cuts through the net of erroneous views and ignorance. Replaces the mistaken notions of the ego that is responsible for the presence of suffering. Tantric deities are explained as representations of the six perfections: generosity, morality, patience, energy, concentration, and wisdom.
