Shri Hevajra Nine Deity Mandala. Sakya Lineage, Tibet. 1300s.
Shri Hevajra is a principal meditational deity of the Anuttarayoga classification in Buddhist Tantra. According to the Sakya system Hevajra belongs to the sub-class of ‘non-dual’ tantra. The Kagyu system classifies Hevajra as ‘Wisdom-mother’ tantra. From the numerous texts within the cycle of Hevajra the root Tantra of ‘Two Sections’ is the most important.
Within the center of the two dimensional circular diagram (mandala) representing the top view of a three dimensional celestial palace and surroundings is the deity Shri Hevajra, dark blue in colour, with eight faces and sixteen hands holding skullcups, standing with four legs in a dancing posture. The first pair of hands embrace the consort Vajra Nairatmya (Selfless One), black, with one face and two hands holding a curved knife and skullcup, standing on the left leg with the right embracing Hevajra. They are both adorned with bone ornaments and stand atop four corpses within the flames of pristine awareness.

[…] a heavily marked rock surface that looks as if it could have served as a bulletin board for passersby. In actuality, we do not know how these sites were used, but the notion of a communication center has endured.
