In Japan, images of Dainichi appear most often in the Taizokai (Womb World) & Kongokai (Diamond World) mandalas, which together depict the key devotional images of Esoteric Buddhism. Dainichi represents the unifying cosmic force, the central essence shared by all myriad forms of the phenomenal world.
