Tathagata Buddha Vairocana Tsa Tsa

This Tsa Tsa shows the Tathagata Buddha Vairocana on a single layered lotus throne. His hands show his typical dharmachakra mudra. In this mudra, the tip of the middle finger of one hand touches the tips of the thumb and index finger of the other hand, forming the mystic circle, and at the level of the heart.

This gesture represents the movement of the Dharma Wheel. After the Buddha attained enlightenment, he gave his first teaching to a companion in the deer park of Sarnath. This gesture symbolizes setting in motion the teaching.

The Tibetan characters that frame him in the shape of an arch are barely decipherable. Presumably, it is his mantra.

Tsa Tsa is relatively old [probably several hundred years, it can hardly be determined more exactly] and is accordingly no longer in an excellent condition. Traces of sand on the surface indicate that it had been buried for a long time.
