Buddhist Diety


Sri Chakrasamvara (Tibetan: khor lo dem chog, English: Wheel of Supreme Bliss): the foremost tutelary deity of the Wisdom-mother classification of Anuttarayoga Tantra. The painting was commissioned by Naljorma Dechen Wangmo and the four-line verse of blessing on the back was written by Kagyu Tanpa'i Gyaltsen. In this case the commissioner is likely to be the yogini Dechen Wangmo, who lived in the late 18th, early 19th century in Eastern Tibet. She was a highly regarded Buddhist practitioner and a student of the 8th Gyalwang Drugchen Rinpoche, Kunzig Chokyi Nangwa, head of the Drugpa Kagyu Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

The deity Chakrasamvara is common to all the Sarma Schools of Sakya, Kagyu and Gelug. Within the latter he is commonly referred to as 'Heruka.' Among the many different forms and mandalas of practice this figure of Vajravarahi entwining the consort with both legs is common to the traditions of mahasiddha Luipa and Maitripa.
