A little progress on this one that is actually for a matchbook design ….In the Tibetan mandalas, the entry into sacred space comes only through engaging with the shadow deities who illustrate our wrathful sides. Through Darkness, Comes Light. #wrathfulDeity #illustration #Wacom #Photoshop

PHURBA DUNGEON: an adjunct of the Dorje Phurba (Vajrakilaya) practice employed as a symbol in respect of incarcerating one's peevishness. This phurkhang is made from carbon steel which has been flamed to achieve the dark rainbow 🌈 effect. The vajra terminal is made of bone. #dungeons #dorjephurba #vajrakilaya #dorjeadornments #vajrayana #vajrayanabuddhism #vajrayanabuddhisttantra #tibet #tibetanart #tibetanbuddhism #buddhisttantra #tantricbuddhism #wrathfuldeity #bone #humanbones #iron #carbonsteel #casecolorhardening #ngakpachögyam #ngakpachogyam #ngakchangrinpoche #nyingmamasters #dzogchenmaster #dzogchenlineage #tantricimplements

Perhaps my favorite purchase from the gem show. The vendor tried to tell me it was a yogi, but the fact it is clearly a woman with a necklace of skulls leads me to believe that it is an iteration of Kali. I love wrathful deities, probably because I have trouble expressing anger and I appreciate the fact their anger is righteous. #wrathfuldeity #tucson2017gemshow

Kyabjé Künzang Dorje Rinpoche just shook his head when asked about Sogyal Lakar. Then he looked out of the window and remained silent for a minute. It was evident that he found the mention of Sogyal Lakar distasteful. Kyabjé Künzang Dorje Rinpoche was born on a khandro day in 1930 in North Eastern Tibet, into a gö kar chang lo family lineage. He was recognised as the incarnation of Charong Drüpchen, by Dzigar Potrül Rinpoche.
At the age of fifteen, he was sent to study at Gomang Gompa for seven years. He left at the age of twenty-two in order to become a wandering yogi.
Kyabjé Düd’jom Rinpoche
requested Kyabjé Künzang Dorje Rinpoche to lead rTsa rLung and gTummo retreats, and to write commentaries on the gTummo and sPrul‘khor. These commentaries are now incorporated into the Düd’jom gTérsar lineage.

Compassion has many faces ... 😉 “Vajravarahji: Dance of the Red Dakini” (detail from original painting)
Compassion in its Wisdom display has many faces. The mystical qualities of the divine feminine are multi-faceted and layered with meaning. The wrathful aspect, Vajravarahi, reflects a fierce, fiery, passionate display of profound love. She will stop at nothing to free us from the bonds of our suffering. She is compassion in action; it’s very movement through the shadows of our mind.

She is part of a sisterhood of fiery red goddesses found in both Hindu and Buddhist traditions. Surrounded by flames, their intense presence is most often misunderstood. With the wisdom of the awakened, she appears in ecstatic dance. Boundless energy generated for the sake of all beings. Fangs bared, drigu (curved knife) held high she will nash, she will slash whatever binds you to your suffering. She will burn it, rip it, tear it, like a mother protecting her children, she dances tirelessly for the sake of us all. She is dakini.

Instructed in my first consultation with my Guru to study the nature of the dakini. 25 years later, my understanding continues to find depth. I observe and contemplate as I live into a deeper understanding of her power and her purpose, the dakini, the skydancer, the female wisdom display, Buddha’s activity in the world. Peaceful or wrathful, she is also known as Khandro. What is my own role as warrior in these changing times? What is yours?

This original painting is available, likely bound for a particular collector. She is a big energy, she will need room to breathe.

A ceremonial apron used to perform the year end mahakala grand puja and sacred dance. Just a small part of large collection of Tibetan artifacts on view at a client's home this morning.

When I see 18th century Chinese unicorns, naturally I think of @kimbeauxxx 😚 #wrathfuldeity #unicorn

Yamāntaka: གཤིན་རྗེ་ གཤེད is a wrathful expression of Manjushri the buddha of wisdom. He is also know as the conquerer of death and a powerful dharma protector of the highest yoga tantra class. Wrathful deities are enlightened beings who take on wrathful forms in order to lead sentient beings to enlightenment. #buddhism #vajrayana #buddhist #tibetanbuddhism #buddhist #yamantaka #yogatantra #大威德金剛 #anuttarayoga #wrathfuldeity #dharma #buddhadharma #threejewels #buddhistlife #tibetanbuddhist #dharmaprotector #geluk #dharmapala #protector #yidam #deity #spirituality #tantricbuddhism #佛教徒 #coexist #thangka #tibetanart #enlightenment #faith

Mahakala - མ་ཧཱ་ཀཱ་ལ། ནག་པོ་ཆེན་པོ། (detail) 🤚🏿👹This 17th century thangka was painted by the renowned Drugu Chogyal Kunga Gyatso (b. 1638). He founded the Drugu Monastery in Lhadrak Dah and the Drugu Retreat Center in 1676. He was both a great religious teacher and a renowned artist. Several of his paintings were saved from the destruction of the Cultural Revolution. The mastery of Drugu can be observed in the delicate patterns on the deity's robes, each brush stroke being carefully considered to achieve this perfection. The perfection of this work is rarely reached and we are very blessed that these centuries old works have survived the test of time 🙏🏿 #tibetanart #tibetanculture #tibetanbuddhism #chogyal #chogyalrinpoche #thangka #mahakala #wrathfuldeity
