Shiva and Shakti in the sacred sexual union and position called Yab-Yum (literally Father-Mother) denoting the perfect balance between physical and spiritual, male and female.
SYMBOLISM AND MEANING: THE SACRED MARRIAGE OF WISDOM AND COMPASSION

Shiva-Shakti : Hindu. The Sacred Marriage of Lady and Lord, depicts a condition of enlightenment w male and female human principles, anima and animus, yin and yang, are perfectly combined in a balanced way. In these images, the union of Vajradhara and Shakti expresses the sacredness of sexuality as a path to spiritual union. Vajradhara (Hindu Shiva) represents the original, primordial Buddha, the one absolute power which creates itself, with no beginning and no end.

Most of these sculptures show a position of sexual union known as Yab-Yum (literally Father-Mother) in Tibetan. This depiction represents a fundamental concept of Buddhism, the union of the male representing compassion with the female representing wisdom, this marriage leading to enlightenment. Shiva is seated in a meditation pose wearing a crown on his head.
He holds a thunderbolt (Vajra) in his right hand representing the male aspect of skillful means and method. In his left hand, he holds a bell (Ghanta) representing the female aspect of supreme wisdom, the two together symbolizes the union of the male and female aspects which leads to liberation and enlightenment.
Shakti holds a ritual curved knife (Kartika) in her right hand symbolizing the severance of ignorance and all material and worldly things. In her left hand, she holds a skull cup (Kapala), used in tantric rituals for tantric rituals for offering sacrificial meat or blood to protective deities.
