Interpretation / Description

Shri Hevajra Nine Deity Manadala (Tibetan: pal gye pa dor je lha gui khyil kor).

Sanskrit: Hevajra Tibetan: Gye pa dor je

Shri Hevajra is a meditational deity of the Anuttarayoga Non-dual classification. From the many Hevajra Tantras and forms of the deity, this representation of Hevajra arises from the root Hevajra Tantra of 'two sections' and was popularized by the Indian mahasiddha (the one of great accomplishment) Virupa.
