There are many deities in Tibetan Buddhism that are depicted in the most amazing ways. Some of my favourites are the Dharma protectors. Those fierce looking beings that keep the teachings and word of the Buddha pure. There are also those fearsome looking deities that dispel ignorance and fear etc. These are not to be feared, they are simply representations of an aspect of Buddha. These are the ones who chase away mind poisons like fear, anger, deception, jealousy etc and are sometimes depicted as quite fearsome looking little critters. This is because these poisons of mind are your real enemies, these are what keep you from full enlightenment so they are often seen as warriors fighting on your side. As with most deities in Tibetan Buddhism, they are said to emanate into human form too….so next time someone gives you a kick up the pants when you need one, give thanks and remember the Dharma protectors. Namaste.
