Manjushri Nagaraksha, Wrathful (Tibetan: jam pal lui drag po). Fearsome in appearance, dark blue in colour with nine faces and eighteen hands, large wings unfurl behind and the lower body is that of a naga (serpent); completely surrounded by the flames of pristine awareness. At the top center is the primordial Buddha Vajradhara with the peaceful bodhisattva Manjushri to the left and Padmasambhava to the right. Below, in the middle is a Black Garuda deity. At the right is Hayagriva and on the left wrathful Vajrapani.
