One of a kind!
A rare rock crystal amulet that has been hand carved with the image of Vajrasattva, the Buddha of Purification.
Vajrasattva or Dorje Sempa is common to all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. His practice is used to purify obscurations so that the Vajrayana student can progress to the various yoga practices of tantra and also to help purify and repair samaya vows. Vajrasattva practice is therefore an essential element of Tibetan Buddhist practice.
This impressive gemstone amulet was a special commission and is crafted from perfectly clear rock crystal. The crystal is carved on the front side and the back is flat and smooth with a bevelled edge that has been faceted.
The 22k gold work has been done by a master Nepalese goldsmith. It is hand hammered in the ancient Roman style which really complements the stone. A powerful piece!
