The Dhyani Buddha, Amoghasiddhi
In Vajrayana Buddhism it is believed Gautama Buddha, The Enlightened One, through intense meditation, created five Dhyani Buddhas capable of defeating a particular evil with a particular good. Amoghasiddhi is the Dhyani Buddha of Infinite Accomplishment and responsible for conforming (sashkara) with Tantra doctrine to overcome envy and jealousy.
Each of the five Dhyani Buddhas has their own iconographic symbolism. For instance, the right-hand gesture of protection (abhyamudra) defines Amoghasiddhi’s identity. By meditating on him, Amoghasiddhi helps transform jealousy into the wisdom of accomplishment. Since jealousy can be seen as a type of fear, the gesture of fearlessness is appropriate for this Buddha.
Amoghasiddhi sits in a meditative padmasana upon a double lotus pedestal (padmapitha). his left hand sits open in his lap (dhyanamudra). His defining colour is green, which also applies to his consort, Tara, whose name means Noble Star or Noble Deliverer. His attribute is the double thunderbolt (visvavajra). He is the embodiment of the rainy season, associated with the air or wind element, represents the Pa group of letters in the alphabet and the middle part of the night. His Vahana is a pair of Garudas. Amoghasiddhi is popular in the Himalayan countries and China.
