Miranda Shaw, Maithuna Symbol

One of the main symbols of enlightenment in Tantric Buddhism is that of a Buddha couple,or male and female Buddha in union. This maithuna symbol is an image of unity and blissful concord between the sexes, a state of equilibrium the interdependence. This symbol powerfully evokes a state of primordial wholeness and completeness of being. The perennial appeal of this motif is not that it commemorates a successful seduction or cosmic manipulation but rather that it offers a vision of authentic humanity in which women and men are restored to wholeness through a delicately balanced, joyous state of harmony.
