An Experience Of Tantra

More terrifying than the demons of western religious hells, the wrathful deities of Buddhism are a bit of a counter-intuitive element. While the beauty of the Buddha and the bodhisattva pantheon lies in their characteristic calm, the Tantric deities in this section have a ferocious and erotic persona - wrathful composure of countenance, garlands of severed human heads, and multiple limbs with weapons in each of them. These deities emerged in the meditative imaginations of ancient Buddhist rishis and munis, as archetypal forces from the depths of the individual unconscious, as protectors and guardians. They weed as much of adharm that besots the mind, and overpower whatever it is that lies in our path to enlightenment.

Because Tantra begins at the highest point, the devotee needs to emulate their chosen deity whilst setting off on the path to enlightenment. It is through projecting oneself on to such fierce forms that one could vanquish the adharmic elements within. The sculptors who made these icons are putting in visual form their own archetypal forces that have helped them in their respective paths. In other words, each of these pieces are authentic and powerful. The finest of signature Nepalese media such as indigenous wood (pigmented) and exquisite copper (gilded), durable and uncompromising on the aesthetics, are to be found in this section. Perceiving these pieces as protective and guardian icons as opposed to base demons would do to your space a world of dharmic good.
