In Tantric Buddhism or Vajrayana, Mandarava is revered as a female guru-deity. In an extraordinary omen, Mandarava was born to a royal couple in Zahor, Northern India. Her mother was an incarnation of the female Buddha Pandaravasini, the consort of Amitabha, and her father was an incarnation of the Buddha’s father, Suddhodana. Mandarava is regarded as wisdom, knowledge, or awareness Dakini. Some of her several names and incarnations include the yogini Mirukyi Gyenchen, “Adorned with Human Bone Ornaments,” during the time of Marpa, Risulkyi Naljorma during the time of Nyen Lotsawa, and Drubpey Gyalmo during the period of Rechungpa. It is believed that Chushingi Nyemachen, the spiritual consort Maitripa, is none other than Mandarava.

Buddhist Gods main description
Buddhist Gods The 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.
