Mahakala is a powerful protector deity, depicted with a dwarf body in dark blue to represent their unchanging dharmakaya nature. Adorned with serpents and a garland of severed head, they bear a crown of five skulls signifying the five defilements. His right hand clutches a Kartri, symbolic of cutting away ego clinging attachments, and in his left hand is a Kapala filled with blood, signifying the subjugation of evil. Three eyes symbolize their clear understanding of past, present, and future, and blood smeared around their mouth demonstrates their activity in eliminating evils.
