YAB-YUM (Union)
"Many tantric divinities are represented as being in union with consorts, and these forms are known as 'yab-yum' (father-mother) forms.  Their union represents the inseparability of relative and absolute, manifestation and voidness, method and wisdom.  They also symbolize the union of what are called the 'solar' and 'lunar' energies, the two poles of subtle energy that flow in the subtle energy system of the human body, which is called the 'Inner Mandala'.  When negative and positive circuits are joined in a lighting circuit, a lamp can be lit.  When the solar and lunar energies of the subtle energy system of a human being are brought into the state of non-duality which was their inherent, latent condition from the very beginning, the human being can become illuminated.  In the same way that, in the Chinese Taoist system of  philosophy, Yin and Yang are seen as two principles of energy that are fundamentally inseparable and mutually interdependent constituents of a totally integrated unity, so, too the solar and lunar energies are seen as fundamentally not-two from the very beginning.  Their fundamental unity is symbolized by the Sanskrit syllable 'Evam', which is also a symbol of the 'yab-yum' principle."
-- from 'The Crystal and the Way of Light: Sutra, Tantra and Dzogchen, Teachings of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu', published by Snow Lion Publications.
