Bodhisattva Stupa-mahasri.jpg

Bodhisattva Stupa-mahasri 卒都波大吉祥菩萨 also known as the Vajra of Joyous Benefit. Stupa refers to the 5 Elements that constitutes all sentient beings. This deity manifests the joy of liberation in the midst of the endless cycles of birth & death that sentient beings experience. In the Garbhakosa Mandala, he is located in the middle row of the Lotus Court, 2nd from the top. His flesh is white, & in each hand holds a fully bloomed lotus. The lotus in the left hand represents the mind of sentient beings, & the one in the right the mind of the Buddhas. Together they represent that the mind of a sentient being is fundamentally no different from that of a Buddha - the non-dual truth.

His mantra is: Om aryastupa-mahasri svaha
