The statue seems wrathful and smiling. It is conceived as an ecstatic manifestation of Padmasambhava. The statue embodies the forces of compassion beyond logic, convention, and insight. It invokes fearlessness and spontaneity in the practitioners to awaken their senses. Dorje Drolo provides enlightenment to the ones who cling to worldly things and hesitant about the things around them. He rides a pregnant tigress, which is also a symbol of the latent power of Buddha that resides within.
Guru Dorje Drolo is the vigorous wrathful form of Buddha that belongs to the degenerate era. His wrath has no regular patterns, and he is entirely out of order. Dorje Dorlo has a different form of energy that overcomes the distinction between life and death. He clears the doubts about the cycle of life. Everything that exists will eventually die, and everything that dies is born again in one or another form. It is a symbol that every moment gives new possibilities.
