Hello, I have a question. Who is the deity depicted at 2:29 in this video?

it's hard to tell with just the face. It may be Kurukulle.

LOL. A new game! It could have a spin-off, 'Name that Mandala!', or 'Name that refuge tree!'

Thanks!

She, er, is a Tibetan Buddhist deity, right? What I'm looking for, basically, is a clearer and larger version of the same image.

Good call! I was gonna say Kurukulle too but it seems the image is taken directly from the clip you linked.
It's not red Tara coz Tara wears a proper crown/diadem along with the flower garland.

the deity stance bothers me, it does not seem to go with the colour red?
does anyone else have a point about that, it is a modern image, and im wondering if its more pop art than tantric image?

the stance is more about potency of energy, i.e. getting ready to move, and should be more passive in colour, i.e, white or yellow etc, rather than the wrathful, full energy of the red.
any thoughts?

just curious.

Heruka-my point is: that is just the stance of that particular deity according to Guru Rinpoche via Jigme Lingpa. I dont think there is much benefit in building up to many concepts around it especially in an public internet forum, where most people dont have the wang of that deity let alone do the practice.

all the best

ok cool, i had seen a yeshe tsogyel in this stance but she was a light pink colour, a unification of the red/white.

had not come across that particular image, is it a empowerment card image, you know the ones that one touches to the hand?

or just a small detail of larger image, if so does anyone have that larger image?
