Tsa'tsas (pron. za-zas) are traditional relief images of Buddhist deities and are used in Tibetan Buddhist meditation practice. They are sacred objects because they represent the various forms of the Buddha. Looking upon a tsa'tsa is thought to purify the mind, remove obstacles and bestow merit. Tsa'tsas may also be given to those who are ill and dedicated to the deceased.
The Buddha Vajrasattva is invoked to purify negative karma and to repair broken vows. In the preliminary practices (ngondro) of Tibetan Buddhism, Vajrasattva's 100 Syllable Mantra is recited 100,000 times.
The Buddha Vajrasattva tsa'tsa statue is handcrafted of durable resin and finished with a warm cream colored glaze that resembles antique ivory. Made in the USA.
