This thangka displays the Aro gTér form of the Dorje Phurba – the formidable, flaming, ‘Glaring Malachite Devil’ of the Buddha-karma who liberates through destruction. Dorje Phurba is the ‘Furiously Splenetic Shrieking Green Razor Demon of Instantaneous Annihilation’. He is in ecstatic embrace with the agonisingly iridescent lapis lazuli Yeshé Tsogyel.
Please see the thangkas on Aro Encyclopaedia for a fuller explanation of the meaning of each image.
