White in color and bearing all the princely ornaments and crown, he will always be represented in the form of sambhogaya, translated as “Glorious Form”.
Vajrasattva belongs to the family of Akshobya. Some believe that he is an emancipation of Vajradhara, while others will regard him as the patriarch of the 5 Dhyani Buddhas.
In Buddhist practice the main function of Vajrasattva is to purify the veils that cover our conscious: ignorance, inner disruptions and karmic debt. These veils can be considered:
- A cause of misery and suffering in our existence.
- An obstacle on the path to self-awareness and the true nature of life.
