Vairochana is regarded as first Dhayani Buddha by Nepalese Buddhist. His place is in the sanctum of the stupa where he is the master of whole temple and its contents. Therefore, he cannot be represented outside the stupa, but exception to this rule is frequently met within the important stupa of Nepal where he is assigned a place between Akshobhya in east and Ratna Sambhav in the south.
Vairochana represents the cosmic element of Rupa (form). When represented, he is white in color, and his two hands are held against the chest with the tips of the thumbs and forefingers of each hand united. His female is Vajradhatviswari. He is in preaching attitude.
