Yamantaka (gshin rje gshed). A wrathful form of Manjushri, representing wisdom that subdues death. “Yamantaka” means 'Slayer of Yama' who is the Lord of Death.
Hayagriva (rta mgrin). Hayagriva or, "horse-necked one," is a primary emanation of Avalokiteshvara., Hayagriva is the archetypal fierce, dynamic manifestation of Avalokiteshvara's undying compassion. The Bodhisattva's compassion transforms into a fierce energy that compels one to overcome internal obstacles and subdue outer hindrances
The most distinguishing characteristic of Hayagriva is the representation of a horse's head above his own. Frequently, as many as three horse's heads are depicted. This is particularly common in multiple-headed representations of the deity.
