      Halahala Lokesvara is one of the 108 manifestations of Avalokitesvara. He sits in the Lalita attitude on a lotus with his Sakti on the lap. He has three faces and six arms.

      The face above represents probably the head of the Dhyani Buddha, whose effigy he should bear on his crown. In his three right hands, he shows the sword, the rosary, and the Varada pose.

      In the three left hands, he carries the lotus, the noose, and the Utpala. The hand holding the noose passes round the Sakti in the act of embracing. The Sakti exhibits the Varada mudra in the right hand and the Abhaya in the left.
