Interpretation / Description

Vajrasattva Chakrasamvara.

The male figure appears to have four faces and seems to have twelve or more arms. The consort appears to have four faces and ten arms. This is most likely described in the Abhidhana-uttaratantra where other forms of Vajrasattva Chakrasamvara forms are found. (khro wo rdo rje sems dpa'). [See HAR #60673].
