Altes Tibetisches Siegel [12]

Old Tibetisches Siegel [12]

Sun and Moon are depicted on the upper edge of the seal. Left and right side of the top figure sun and moon are visible. They are two of the most important polarity symbols in Vajrayana Buddhism. The sun represents the feminine aspect of wisdom and the moon the male aspect of method or compassion.

These two symbols also show the illiterate person where the top of the seal is, preventing the seal impression from appearing upside down on the sealed document.
