Hayagriva. Wrathful deity of the Padma (Lotus) Family, the manifestation of the wrathful activity of Buddha Amitabha, from the Terma (Treasure) tradition of Kyergangpa, 12th century. Hayagriva is considered the embodiment of the speech aspect of all Buddhas. It cuts through illusion and/or false attachments to evoke or reveal the nature of reality which is the enlightened mind.
Sungkhors (lit. "protection-chakra") are protective charms/amulets that contain miniature mandalas of specific deities folded and covered with intricate handwoven colored string designs stipulated by vajrayana texts of the specific deities. Although all enlightened deities are perfect in their blessing qualities, each deity is often associated with a different enlightened quality.

This amulet can be worn around the neck or placed inside your pocket, your wallet or handbag. You can also hang it at home or in your car.
[Note: Although these sungkhors can be worn immediately, it is often advised that owners have them personally blessed and consecrated by a qualified lama to unlock the maximum effect of these powerful protective charms. Tibetan Spirit can arrange for this if a lama isn't available in your area.
You can use the “Tip” option at checkout to send a small offering to the lama for the blessing of the sungkhor as it is customary to do so but by no means required.
Much of sungkhors available online claim that they have been "pre-blessed by high lamas" are of dubious origins unless the seller is directly associated with a bona-fide Buddhist organization or monastery - always ask!]
