Ven. Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche discusses the many male deities in Tantric Buddhism. In Tibetan Buddhism some popular male deities include Chenrezig, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Buddha Amitabha, Vajrasattva, Yamantaka, Chakrasambara, Hevajra, and Vajrakilaya. Sometimes deities come in union with their consort, sometimes alone. Depending on the sadhana, these deities are visualized either in front of oneself or as oneself, or both. Also there are various benefits that are associated with the different practices such as health, wealth, longevity, wisdom, and compassion. If you would like to learn about these important male deities, please listen.
