Born from the tears of the Protector of the Three Worlds.’

The other pictures are Vajrasattva with his consort. It’s such a beautiful statue, and not one you can find as easily, and since I am doing my Vajrasattva mantra counting right now, I decided to go ahead and get this one too. Now I need to fill them.
