MAHAKALA X SLICKNICK

 

Mahakala_Joel

Mahakala – protector against negativity

Done last week on our friend, Joel. 

Mahakala is a protector (Dharmapala) and the primary ‘Wisdom Protector’ of Himalayan and Tibetan Buddhism. There are dozens of different variations and forms of Mahakala. But he’s mostly shown in his wrathful appearance.

Mahakala may look frightening, but that’s not meant to make you afraid! Mahakala is the threatening and powerful embodiment of the bodhisattva of compassion. Bodhisattvas are enlightened beings who have to decided to say ‘no’ to entering paradise in order to help others attain enlightenment. He is always depicted as an extremely fierce and terrifying deity. His purpose is to help to overcome negative obstacles on the path to enlightenment and to protect them on their way to it. The mask of Mahakala is also meant to scare bad spirits and energy away from the place it protects. He is known as a compassionate protector, with all his aggression directed at those who would do harm. His anger is necessary because it gives him the fearsome power to demolish any enemies or obstacles on the way to enlightenment. His face is frightening also to scare away negative thoughts, actions, and energy. Mahakala masks are frequently found in temples and monasteries in Tibet, as well as in private homes as symbols of protection.

The cloud of fire above Mahakala‘s eyes and coming from his mouth represents his powerful energy. His third eye shows his function as a protector; three orbs of vision express his ability to see the past, present and future. Mahakala has a crown of five skulls, which represent the transmutation of five negative afflictions of human nature into virtues. As he confronts negative forces and crushes them with his anger, his crown of skulls neutralizes what remains and works to transform it into something positive. Which means that ignorance becomes wisdom, pride is humbled, attachment becomes the wisdom of discernment, jealously shifts to feeling satisfied with one’s own accomplishments, and anger is released and soothed.

Mahakala

Mahakala is always a protective deity with these features, but he can be portrayed in several different colors:

– Most of the time he is dark blue, which symbolizes the steady and enduring nature of dharma.
– Sometimes he is black; as black absorbs all other colors, so does Mahakala represent ultimate or absolute reality and transcendence of all form.
– Red Mahakala reflects in color his passionate and fiery nature.
– Mahakala in his white form helps one attain riches and a long life.

When you consider Mahakala as your spiritual bodyguard. He appears to be tough and extremely scary, but he is somebody you want to have on your side as you face the trials and obstacles in life!
