Hevajra Eight Deity Mandala (Tibetan: pal gye pa dor je lha mo gye) according to the uncommon oral instruction tradition of mahasiddha Virupa and the Margapala system of Tantric practice. Within the Ngor Tradition this painting is believed to originally have belonged to Ngorchen Kunga Zangpo and remained with him as his kaya samaya when traveling.
Shri Hevajra is a principal meditational deity of the Anuttarayoga classification in Buddhist Tantra. According to the Sakya system Hevajra belongs to the sub-class of 'non-dual' tantra. The Kagyu system classifies Hevajra as 'Wisdom-mother' tantra. From the numerous texts within the cycle of Hevajra the root Tantra of 'Two Sections' is the most important.
