Yogini- lion-headed Yogini in Vajrayana Buddhism is the visualization of the seething
potencies of the female deity, who shows a lion’s ferociousness and quickness in
the annihilation of evil and protection of her devotees. In this Nepalese statue
of Simhamukha Yogini, the goddess is in an enchanting dancing posture, with a
Kartari, danda, and skull cup in her hands. The flaming aureole, gaping mouth
of Yogini, and flying scarf create a visual narration full of vigor.
