🕉#bhairavi raise me from foot to head so I am ash that is then blown away by the wind. 🕉 #Kālī chop off my head and catch the essence of all the energy put into being someone in a skull cup so that I may drink that energy in, that it may awaken the śakti. 🕉 #Chinnamastā May I be you severing my own head (ego) for the benefit of All beings. 🕉 #Nairātmyā May I be as you are ‘she who has no self’. Being no one going nowhere frees from the eternal becoming and the violence of self clinging.
number 1 : KALACHAKRA Kalachakra is a YI-DAM (god protector) who turns the wheel of life. Kalachakra is the title of one of the divisions of the Kangyur. It is possible that Kalachakra is a personification of that work. Kalachakra is usually portrayed as a YI-DAM with four heads, on each of which is a third eye. He may have 12 or 24 arms, but never has more than 2 legs. In His Yi-DAM form, he is dark blue. His body is covered by a tiger skin. He wears a belt formed of Vajras. He is always represented stepping to the left on two prostrate personnages or demons, with 4 arms. The personage under the right foot holds a bow and arrow , the one under the left, a trident. Number 2 : MANJUVAJRA Manjuvajra is a form of Manjusri, represented with his shakti. He has 3 heads. The centre face is red, the right face is blue and the left one white. He has 6 arms of which the principle pair is engaged in embracing his female counterpart. The remaining 4 hands carry the sword, the arrow, the bow and the night lotus. He sits in Vajrasana or in the Vajra-Paryanka attitude in the orb of the moon, supported by a lotus. Number 3 : VAJRADHARA In Vajrayana, Adi Buddha is regarded as the highest deity of the Buddhist Pantheon. When represented he begets the name of Vajradhara and is conceived in two forms, single and yabyum. When single, he is decorated with jewels, ornaments and dresses. He sits in the Vajra-Paryanka or the attitude of meditation. He carries the vajra in the right hand and the ghanta in the left. the two hands being crossed against the chest as vajrahunkara mudra. In Yabyum, his form remains the same as when single except that here he is locked in close embrace with his Shakti. Number 4 : CHANKRA SAMBARA Chakra Sambara is the male deity of Sambara. He is also regarded as a manifestation of the Heyvajra who is the central figure of an esoteric cult, the Vajrayana Buddhism. Vajrabarahi is his consort embracing in a mystic position. Their embrace symbolises union between wisdom and method which leads to ultimate bliss. Number 5 : TIBETAN KING No additional information. Number 6 : KUBERA The lord of wealth and guardian of the Northern Direction. (🙏Randell)
