HERUKA CHAKRASAMVARA (Tib. Demchog Khorlo Dompa)
Heruka Chakrasamvara ("Wheel of Bliss"), the tantric manifestation of
Buddha Shakyamuni, embodies the union of method and wisdom (bliss and
emptiness). Embracing his consort Vajrayogini, he is depicted with four
faces symbolizing the four enlightened activities: pacifying, enriching,
magnetizing and destroying. The 12 arms holding various ritual
implements represent the twelve dependant related links in the "wheel of
life" and the twelve powers.
