Vajradhar – The Primordial Buddha
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Vajradhar is the primordial Buddha, the Dharmakaya Buddha. Vajradhar, depicted as dark blue in color, expresses the quintessence of Buddhahood itself. Vajradhar represents the essence of the historical Buddha's realization of enlightenment. Historically, Prince Siddhartha attained enlightenment under the Bodhi tree in Bodhgaya over 2500 years ago and then manifested as the Buddha. According to Buddhist cosmology, he was the Fourth Historic Buddha of this fortunate eon. Prince Siddhartha's achievement of enlightenment, the realization, or wisdom of enlightenment itself, is called the Dharmakaya, the body of truth. When he expresses that realization through subtle symbols, his realization is called the Sambhogakaya, the body of enjoyment. When such realization manifested in more accessible or physical form for all sentient beings as the historical Shakyamuni Buddha, it is called the Nirmanakaya, the body of manifestation.

The Dharmakaya, synonymous with Vajradhar Buddha, is the source of all the manifestations of enlightenment. Vajradhar is central to the Kagyu lineage because Tilopa received the vajrayana teachings directly from Vajradhar, the Dharmakaya Buddha. Thus, the Kargyudpa lineage originated from the very nature of Buddhahood. The Kargyudpa lineage of Tibetan Buddhism begins with the Buddha Vajradhar. The individual in this tradition is allowed to visualize his root Guru as Buddha Vajradhara. Guru Tilopa is said to have received Mahamudra instruction directly from Budhda Vajradhar through visions and other extraordinary means. In Nispannayogavali, Vajradhar is the main deity in Vajrasattvamandala. Vajradhar is three faced, six armed and reddish white in color. His right arm hold a vajra, a sword and a kapala and his left hands hold a bell, and ankush and a noose. Vajradhar stands in the Ardhaparyanka posture and dances in Tandava style.

In this form of Vajradhar, his right hand holding the dorje (symbolizing “method”), his left hand holding the bell (symbolizing wisdom), and the two hands crossed his chest expressing complete integration of Prajna and Upaya. Vajradhar is usually depicted in blue color in Vajraparyanka posture. Vajradhar has a crown, an Urna and an Ushnisha as of a Sambhogakaya Buddha. Vajradhara is also depicted in father-mother (Aaju-Aji in Newari) aspect. Then he holds his usual symbols while his arms are crossed at back of his consort. The consort is none other than Prajnaparamita in deified form.
