Vajravarahi (Dorjepagmu) is one of the most popular and commonly depicted meditational deities of Tantric Buddhism. She is also found in the same Sanskrit literature (Abhidhana Uttaratantra) that describes the deity Chakrasamvara. Vajravarahi is a form of the deity Vajrayogini. The only difference in appearance is that Vajravarahi has a boar’s head attached to her own, either placed on the top or on the right side of the head. Vajravarahi, red in color, with one face and two hands. Her right hand holds aloft a curved knife and the left a skull-cup to the heart. In the bend of the left elbow a katvanga staff is held against her left shoulder. Adorned with bone ornaments and a necklace of heads she stands in a dancing posture on a corpse seat. Surrounding her, on the four lotus petals, stand four figures. Above is red Padma Dakini, to the right is green Karma Dakini, below is dark blue Vajra Dakini, and to the left is yellow Ratna Dakini. All have the same hand objects, ornaments, and posture as the central figure. Situated on a black background, the central figures are surrounded by three successive rings of skulls, gold vajras, and the five colored flames of the fires of pristine awareness.
