Singhamukha Yogini Thangka is handpainted in Nepal.
Simhamukha, the Lion-Faced Dakini is appropriate for clearing obstacles of the most pervasive and malignant kind and cutting through the “three poisons” of mind.
This ancient practice has been important in Tibetan Buddhism since the time of Padmasambhava.
The practice of the Lion-faced Dakini is said to be a reliable source of protection when obstacles arise.
“Defilements attract the maras of hindrances and enemies just as a magnet attracts iron filings. When you clear away the negativity of your own poisons, there is nothing to attract the maras.”
