Buddhist Deity: Ekajati (Nyingma)

Ekajati Main Page | Ekajati Outline Page

The Nyingma form of the Indian Buddhist deity Ekajati is easily recognized by the one eye in the middle of the forehead. She is often depicted with only one breast and sometimes only one leg. This one-eyed form of Ekajati is unique to Tibetan Buddhism and the Nyingma 'Treasure' (Terma) tradition and is not found in Indian Tantric Buddhism.
