Nagaraksha (Tibetan: lui drag po): a fierce form of the bodhisattva Manjushri from the Drigung lineage of the Kagyu Tradition.
With nine heads and a multitude of hands, the lower body is that of a coiled snake tail, green in colour, with snakes arising from the crown of the head and the entire form surrounded by flames of wisdom.
