Description

清 乾隆 御制西藏青铜双身密集金刚坐像

(乾隆御製) 橫款

密集金刚,是藏传佛教无上瑜伽部父续的本尊,是西藏格鲁派创始人宗喀巴大师的本尊守护神。

密集金刚是五大金刚中唯一坐姿的,主佛与明妃皆为三目三面六臂,头戴五叶宝冠,额间具第三眼(金刚部忿怒相),表明密集金刚是由佛部和金刚部诸神集会的复合神格组成。佛父和佛母双身拥抱的“双性同体”,表示“悲智合一”,摧毁调伏魔杖,自内心生成无垠大乐能量,引向“与佛同体”的佛智象征。六臂中的二臂分别执金刚铃和金刚杵交叉置于明妃背后,其他四臂分别执宝瓶、莲花、智慧剑和法轮。佛母亦三面六臂,手中持物与金刚相同,下承仰覆莲座。

乾隆自认是文殊菩萨在世间的转圣轮王,具有文殊菩萨的智慧和威力,可以给世间带来安定繁荣;盛极的黄教肯定了乾隆对藏传佛教地区的统治,内地宫廷大量系统地铸造佛像,密集金刚被看成是最高本尊之一。

Qing Dynasty, Qianlong Tibetan Copper Group of Guhyasamaja Akshobhyavajra

Guhyasamaja seated in dhyanasana on a double lotus base with beaded rims, wearing a sanghati incised with delicate floral motif and embracing Sparsavajri in his arms, representing the primordial union of wisdom and compassion. With her legs wrapped around his waist, each with a vajra and bell in their primary hands and various implements in their secondary hands, their central faces gazing at each other, surmounted by foliate tiaras and high chignons topped with finials. Both hold the same attributes underlining the concept of symmetry on which to meditate, as it is suggested that all physical and mental phenomena have a symmetrical nature.
