VAJRAVARAHI

 

In Tibetan Buddhism, Vajravārāhī is a wrathful form of Vajrayogini associated particularly with the Cakrasaṃvara Tantra, where she is paired in yab-yum with the Heruka Cakrasaṃvara. Judith Simmer-Brown writes that “Vajravārāhī’s iconography is very similar to that of Vajrayoginī, but she often has more prominent fangs and a more wrathful expression, and she prominently displays a sow’s head above her right ear.”
