Interpretation / Description

Chakrasamvara and Vajrayogini.

This depiction derives from the Abhidhana Tantra. The most noticeable characteristic is the dancing posture, with one leg raised, and the red Vajrayogini consort with the legs wrapped around the torso of Chakrasamvara. (a bhi dha na las gsungs pa'i bde mchog).
