Red Seng-gé Dongma – hair

Red Seng-gé Dongma

her burgeoning copper hair flies upward

This close-up draws us closer to the centre of compassionate ferocity of the Red Seng-gé Dongma – and the inspiration to move beyond self-interest. Khandro Déchen says of this image:
Her burgeoning copper hair flies upward as a billowing green blaze. She wears the wrathful five-skull crown which transforms conflicting emotions into the spectral wisdom of chö-ku; and instantaneously transmogrifies emaciated dualistic attributes of the physical elements into the play of chö-ying.
