Buddhist Deity: Hayagriva (Kagye)

Eight Heruka Iconography

The line drawing below is identified as Padma Vag however the hand attributes are those of Padma Ishvara common to the Sakya tradition and the 'Very Secret' Hayagriva of Sera Monastery. The iconography of Hayagriva of the Lama Gongdu appears to closely follow the Hayagriva of the Eight Heruka group.
