Brief Introduction to Wrathful Hayagriva
 
Hayagriva, Heruka.
(Tibetan: tam drin, drag tung. English: Horse Neck)

Wrathful and fearsome, body radiant dark red, with one face, with large round staring eyes and cavernous mouths with sharp canine teeth, he has brown hair flowing upward and on top of the head is a small green horse head roaring loudly to all directions. One face, two hands, very wrathful form, and skullcup while embracing the consort Secret mother, Vajra Yogini (or known as Vajra Varahi). 

The right hand, holds a hook knife. Adorned with a crown of five dry skulls, earrings, gold and jewel ornaments, a necklace of heads and a tiger skin skirt, he is completely attired in wrathful charnel ground vestments. The consort has one face and two hands, blue in colour, holding a skullcup in the left. Adorned in wrathful attire she wears a necklace of skulls and a leopard skin skirt. Standing with two legs, the right bent and left straight, above two corpses atop a sun disc and multi-coloured lotus Hayagriva and consort dwell surrounded by the flames of pristine awareness. 

As Hayagriva is the wrathful reflex of the peaceful bodhisattva of compassion he stands roaring in a continence of "tough love" amidst the flames of transcendental wisdom.
