Yin Yang

Like the Hindu Shatkona or the Taoist yin-yang, yab-yum image represents dual forces in union, which united, create a transcendent unity. Yab-yum about the union of Compassion and Truth/Wisdom. The male figure represents compassion and skillful means, while the female partner represents insight. Often a large Buddha-Dakini woman sat in his lap, her legs wrapped around his waist.
Yab-Yum is the symbol of divine union. It is the posture in which man and women are united between Heaven and Earth: a classic meditation posture. “Yab-Yum” is a Tibetan term meaning “father-mother”.
The symbolism of union and sexual polarity is a central teaching Tantric Buddhism.
The masculine form is active, representing the compassion and skillful means (upaya) that have to be developed in order to reach enlightenment. The feminine form is passive and represents wisdom (prajna), which is also necessary to enlightenment. United, the figures symbolize the union necessary to overcome the veils of Maya, the false duality of object and subject.
