Description of Krodikali
Krodikali, or Troma Nagmo, also known as the Black Wrathful Lady, is the Great Mother of Compassion and a manifestation of Vajravarahi. She represents wisdom in a feminine form and her worship is one of the greatest level beliefs in Vajrayana associated with Chod Practice. She dances upon a corpse, a sun disk, and a lotus while carrying a curved knife with a Vajra handle in her spread right hand and a skull cup filled with blood in her lowered left hand. She is covered in a shawl made of human skin, a loincloth made of tiger skin, a garland made of fifty severed heads, and an elephant hide draped over her back. A trident-crowned Khatvanga is resting in the bend of her left arm. The angry and squealing head of a sow protrudes from the crown of her head, where her yellow hair flows upward over her five-skull crown.

Buddhist Gods main description
Buddhist GodsThe Buddhist pantheon comprises hundreds of Gods and Goddesses. They are intended to illustrate the multiple aspects of enlightenment, including its wrathful and furious sides, as well as its peaceful and beneficial aspects. In Mahayana Buddhism, gods, goddesses, and other spiritual beings play a much bigger role than in Theravada Buddhism. They symbolize the energies, forces, and entities that surround and fill human life. They also mirror the human spirit's deeper depths, reflecting attributes that can be awakened through spiritual practice. Voluptuous tree spirits, maternal nurturers, elevated knowledge figures, benevolent healers, potent protectors, cosmic mothers of liberation, and dancing female Buddhas are all part of the pantheon. Childbirth, agriculture, fortune, longevity, art, music, knowledge, love, magic, and occult rituals are all overseen by gods, goddesses, and other spiritual beings. Some of them protect against diseases, snakebites, demons, curses, untimely death, and all other fatal dangers. There are also gods, goddesses, and other spiritual beings that aid practitioners in their quest for knowledge, mental cleansing, higher rebirth, and complete spiritual enlightenment.
