Lakshmi and HayagrivaHayagriva or Hayangriva (tib.: rTam grin) is a yidam, a personal, or tutelary, deity. In Buddhism he was considered a terrifyingmanifestation of Avalokiteshvara, Lord of Compassion. Hayagriva is an esoteric form of Hayagriva evoked in some meditations. He was created originally to conquer a demon named Matong Rudra. Hayagriva has three terrible heads, each surmounted by a horse head. His terrific nature is revealed by his crown of skulls, garland of severed heads, tiger skin skirt, and capes of flayed human and elephant skins. He has been especially favored by the Nyingma Order from its earliest days. He has many forms, often with three faces, six arms, and four legs, and sometimes with huge wings. The teachings of Hayagriva were first brought to Tibet from India by Padmasambhava.
