Vajravarahi Statue Making Process
The Statue of Vajravarahi is made by the process of the lost wax system.
The lost wax system is the oldest process of making metal sculptures.
This is a very long and time-consuming process but the result we get is worth the time and effort.
Nepal is probably the only country still manufacturing the statue by this process.
Vajravarahi is a representation of complete Buddhahood in female form, whose practices are associated with the Chakrasamvara Cycle of Anuttarayoga Tantra.
Although her practice exists in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism, she is particularly associated with the Kagyu tradition and has appeared to and bestowed initiations on some Mahasiddhas over the years.
Making offerings to her image makes a connection with this extremely potent Buddha and seeing her plant seeds of enlightenment in our mindstream.
Her image pacifies our immediate environment, clears negative energy and protects from negative interferences.
Gestures and Attributes of Dorje Phagmo
Vajravarahi holds a cemetery knife in her right hand and a skull cup in her left. In the crook of her left elbow is a khatvanga staff and her two legs are in a celestial dancing posture on a human corpse.
She is often depicted with a sow’s head on the side of her own, symbolic of the triumph of dharma over ignorance.
