('Conquerer of 
death' resp. of
Yama, the
god of death).
An extremly
wrathful emanation
of Manjushri with
9 heads, 32 arms
and 16 legs. As a
protector deity and
yidam he helps
to overcome all
fears of death, 
because even death
is an illusion. Hereby
he is driven by
the motivation of
compassion and
sympathy with
all suffering beings
(Mahakaruna). His
short mantra is
OM YAMANTAKA
HUNG PHET (seed
syllables: HUNG and
DHI)
