Description Vajrabhairava, also known as Yamantaka, is a wrathful, buffalo-headed meditational deity (Tib: yi-dam) of the Highest Yoga Tantra class and a dharma protector. Vajrabhairava is one of the principal three meditational deities of the Gelug school (Tib: gsang bde 'jigs gsum') the others are Chakrasamvara and Guhyasamaja. He is also one of the main yidams in the Sakya School where he comes in a variety of appearances with different mandalas. In both schools Vajrabhairava is seen as the wrathful manifestation of Manjushri, the Bodhisatwa of wisdom. In the other schools of Tibetan Buddhism Yamantaka seems to be mostly revered as a protector. The (mostly secret and arcane) practices there involve different activities for various purposes.
