- Kunzang Gyalwa Gyatso Description
Tibetan: Kunzang Gyalwa Gyatso (kun bzang rgyal ba rgya mtsho).
Kunzang Gyalwa Gyatso is the peaceful form of the very wrathful meditational deity Walse Ngampa.
In the Bon religion all deities have both a peaceful and a wrathful form. Each of these forms also has a distinct name. Unless told or unless read from a text it is not possible to associate the peaceful deity with its own wrathful counterpart.
Kunzang Gyalwa Gyatso is commonly confused with the Buddhist deity Eleven-faced Lokeshvara.
