The “Spring Temple Buddha”

If Capricorn was considered to describe the character of the celestial Adibuddha Vairocana it could be his aspect as the embodiment of Emptiness (Śūnyatā) which refers to the absence of inherent existence in all phenomena that could best be related to the reflex of the reduction of mysticism in Capricorn. If Capricorn is interpreted as an indication for the possible aspect of Vairocana as the primordial and highest of all Buddhas Capricorn would indicate that Vairocana represents an administrator of the cosmos rather than a central creator personality.
