Vairochana (Tibetan: nam par nang dze), the central deity of the Tattvasamgraha Tantra, also known as the Vajradhatu Mandala with 1,037 deities, belonging to the Yoga classification of tantra.
This form of Vairochana varies in appearance from the Mahavairochana of the Sarvadurgati Parishodhana Tantra. The latter has the two hands placed in the lap in the gesture of meditation. The Tattvasamgraha image holds the two hands at the heart in a gesture with the right hand grasping the index finger of the left hand.
