4-Armed Kurukulle
(click image for larger view)
<< Previous    Next >>
Rigjedma, 4-armed aspect of Red Tara holding a fully-drawn bow and arrow made of lotus flowers as well as an elephant goad and a noose, also of flowers. She is one of the twenty-one Taras and is both a yidam & a dharmapala. Her basic function is to bring benefit by arousing passion, then transmuting it into wisdom. She uses her bow to shoot the arrow which subjugates discursive thoughts, then uses hook and lasso, or noose, to bind dualistic thinking into the vast expanse of pristine awareness. Trampling upon the corpse of ego, which represents the egolessness of her actions, she wears the five skulls of her crown as ornaments of the spiritual path and as symbols of having overcome the five emotional hindrances.
