Dorje Drolo is one of the eight manifestations of Guru Rinpoche.

He appears in this wrathful form of “crazy wisdom” to subdue worldly spirits and bind them under oath to protect terma ( revealed teachings ) and to serve the dharma. “Crazy wisdom ” is a term with different interpretations, but it could be seen as the activity of holy madness. Unconventional, sometimes offensive behavior which is actually fully immersed in spiritual realization.

Dorje Drolo, red in color, is seen here riding atop a pregnant tigress amidst clouds of smoke, flames and swirling oceans of blood. He holds a Dorje in his right hand and a phurba in his left.
