Appears as a protector deity known as a dharmapala in Vajrayana Buddhism, particularly most Tibetan traditions, in Tangmi (East Asian Esoteric Buddhism) and in Shingon (Japanese Esoteric Buddhism). He is known as Dàhitin in Chinese and Daikokuten in Japanese. Mahkla is a Sanskrit bahuvrihi of mah (; “great”) and kla (; “time/death”), which means “beyond time” or death. The literal Tibetan translation is “Nagpo Chenpo” (Tibetan:), although when referring to this deity, Tibetans usually use the word Gönpo (Tibetan: , Wylie: mgon po). All schools of Tibetan Buddhism rely on Mahkla. He is depicted in a number of variations, each with distinctly different qualities and aspects. He is also regarded as the emanation of different beings in different cases, namely Avalokitevara (Wylie: spyan ras gzigs) or Cakrasavara (Wylie: khor lo bde mchog). Mahkla is almost always depicted with a crown of five skulls, which represent the transmutation of the five kles (negative afflictions) into the five wisdoms. Nyingshuk came from Khyungpo Nenjor, the founder of the Shangpa Kagyu, and spread to all the lineagesSakya, Nyingma, and Gelugas well as various Kagyu lineages. There are also terma lineages of various forms of Six-Armed Mahkla. Nyinghsuk, though derived from the Shangpa, is not the major Shangpa oneit is in a dancing posture rather than upright, and is a very advanced Mahkla practice. Height: 32.0 cm 12.60 in.
