The meditational deity Hayagriva Very Secret (Tamdrin Yang Sang) is derived from the Nyingma tradition but is primarily practiced and continued by the Sakya Tradition and the Sera monastery of the Gelug tradition.

"To the Dharma body of all conquerors of the Lotus Lineage, vajra body of the Dharma Lord Amitabha, in a raging great form, emanating from...Avalokiteshvara; homage to Hayagriva, neighing like a horse." (Nyingma Liturgical Text).
