Yamantaka Vajrabhairava mother-father tangka



 

Surrounded by four deities and two enlightened teachers,   Yamantaka is one of the most important of all Gelukpa archetype deities, representing the adamantine wisdom of ultimate reality in triumph over evil, suffering, and death. This depiction also shows scenes from his evolution.

He is the terrific form of the Bodhisattva Manjushri, whose benign princely head appears in red, with crown and earrings at the top of Yamantaka's stack of heads. In order to conquer Death, the compassionate Bodhisattva assumes the buffalo-headed form of Yama, Lord of Death. With his other 8 faces, 16 legs and 30 arms, he expresses the many facets of his inconceivable enlightenment and manifests a power far greater than Yama.  Thus overwhelming Yama, he stops his killing activity and becomes the Terminator of Death (Yama-antaka).

Possibly the Tsong Khapa, usually pictured with Yamantaka pictured in the upper left and right corners.

Tsong Khapa (1357-1419) was one of the greatest lamas of Tibet, revered as a consummate clarifier of Shakyamuni Buddha's Teaching and as an energetic renewer of its practice. He is regarded as the founder of the Geluk order.  He was especially inspired by the heritage of Nagarjuna and Chandrakirti, which he aimed to uphold in both his Dialectical Centrist philosophical method and his Unexcelled Yoga tantra contemplative and artistic traditions. His charismatic movement was centrally responsible for the religious renaissance that made Tibet's uniquely sacred modern culture possible.

Vaishravana is one of the four guardina deities who live on the upper slopes of Mr. Meru, the mytical center of the cosmos. As King of the north ~ which is considered to hold fabulous treasures. He holds a victory banner in one hand and a mongoose in the other. He rides upon a snow Lion.
