About Vajravarahi

Vajravarahi, the Diamond Sow (Dorje Pakmo in Tib) - belongs to the community of Samvara deities. She is described by the relevant texts as depicted either alone or with her retinue, against the background of a cemetery or without it. Vajravarahi is the female incarnation of archetype Buddha Samvara.

Vajravarahi is described in the text as the blossom of the pomegranate, one headed, two armed, three-eyed, with loose hair, naked filled with five knowledge and embodiment of incomparable pleasure (Maha Sukha).

The painting of Vajravarahi exposes dancing (Pratyalidha- Tandava Mudra) pose standing on the left leg, on the yellow reclining body of corpse (dead body). The goddess wears a crown of five skulls representing the Panch Skandha on the top of skull of headdress a wheel of Dharma is depicted lying on a half moon. In the Chakrasamvara Tantra text, Vajravarahi is shown as the cosmic energy or the consort of the Chakrasamvara. To the right of her face is the head of a blue sow.  Vajravarahi wears a garland of skulls. She has gold earrings and ornaments on her neck. White colored ornaments are personified as pieces of human bones, these human bone ornaments are bedecked on her arms, wrists, hips and ankles including an apron and a grand necklace. Her right hand holds a Vajra chopper (Vajra-Kartri); the left hand holds a skull bowl before her breast. Vajravarahi carries a Karota-Khatvanga staff, surmounted by three skulls and a Vajra on the pinnacle, in the crook of her left arm. Vajravarahi stands on the solar disc on the top of yellow corpse, supported by multicolored lotus blossom with a double row of petals. The figure is surrounded by Agni mandala or a flame Mandala with pointed tongues.

Sometimes Vajravarahi is escorted by six deities the personification of the size syllables in Vajravarahi mantra.
