Padmasambhava: Main Form (Vajra Upraised)

Padmasambhava: Main Form

Padmasambhava with the vajra upraised is often associated with meditational forms of the figure as opposed to simply being a devotional representation. The Longchen Nyingtig Refuge Field compositions often depict Padmasambhava with the vajra raised. This form can also be found embracing the consort Yeshe Tsogyal.
