Q: It seems that Vajrasattva and Vajradhara, be it single or yab-yum, are in the same posture and have the same implements. The only difference is their color: Vajrasattva is white and Vajradhara blue. In line drawings they look the same.
A: Not quite. Apart from the color both figures can be distinguished by how they hold vajra and bell. Vajradhara holds them with his hands crossed and turned inwards, whereas Vajrasattva shows the vajra. It is best seen in direct comparison.
