Regarded as the ADI-BUDDHA, he symbolizes the male element of the Universe. The Chinese would call him the God of YANG.
He seems to be a kind and happy Buddha, naked, unashamed, and associated in some way with elephant with three heads and tusks. Whatever makes you happy, we say.
His female counterpart is SAMANTABHADRA. They are both very into YAB-YUM and Tantric religious ecstasy — and are very popular in consequence.
His Japanese incarnation is known as FUGEN.
