Bodhisattva Padmakulodbhava 莲花部发生菩萨 also known as the Vajra of Limitlessness. His name means "one who produced the Lotus Race", & he is limitless in his power to produce. Thus in the Garbhakosa Mandala he is located at the top of the 1st row in the Lotus Court. His flesh is white, & is seated on a red lotus. He holds a stalk of fully bloomed lotus in the left hand, & the right forms a mudra of consolation. Together they represent the confirmation that the possibility for sentient beings to realize full enlightenment is infinite.

His Garbhakosa mantra is: Namah samanta buddhanam ksah dah ra yam kam
