About the Art

The Vajrayogini of Sankhu is also called “Ugratara.” She is considered to be the female Buddha. Vajrayoginī’s essence is “great passion” a transcendent passion that is free of selfishness and illusion. She wears a necklace of skulls and holds a kapala (skull cup) and khatwanga in her hands. She is seen stepping on Bhairav and Ajima (two protector god and goddess). Vajrayogini also represents the wisdom of Sunyata - the voidness that constitutes ultimate reality.
