The depiction of Vajrayogini, a prominent tantric deity in Vajrayana Buddhism, in a fierce or furious form often includes her holding a curved knife (Kartika) along with a skullcup. This form represents the cutting through of ignorance and the transformation of negative emotions into wisdom.
Vajrayogini is in a dynamic stance, radiating a powerful and wrathful energy. She wields the Kartika, symbolizing the severance of attachments and the swift removal of obstacles on the path to enlightenment. The skull cup typically holds a nectar of wisdom, emphasizing the transformative nature of her practice.
This fierce form of Vajrayogini is not about anger but signifies the forceful removal of obstacles and the intensity required for profound spiritual transformation. Practitioners engaging with this aspect of Vajrayogini aim to cultivate wisdom and compassion by confronting and overcoming the challenges on the path to enlightenment.
