In Asia, we find the symbolism of the skull in Buddhism and Hinduism through their religious art. Indeed the representation of the lord of death among Buddhists, named Yama, has five skulls around his head, like a crown that indicates a victory over five defects: hatred, greed, pride, envy and ignorance. On the other hand in the Hindu religion Kali the goddess of death is adorned with a necklace of skulls.

Mahakala is almost always depicted with a crown of five skulls, which depict the transformation of the five kleshas (afflictions) in the Five Wisdoms of Buddha.

Skulls are often found in buddhist necklaces. In this way we represent again the impermanence of existence.

For example it is quite common to come across bowls made with skulls, called kapala in Sanskrit. Buddhist monks spend time looking at them to remember their temporality. It helps to keep in mind that death is omnipresent and can occur at any time.

The importance of the skull lies in the representation of this part of the body in many European and Asian legends. The macrocosmic representation of Man compares his skull, protector of the soul, to the celestial vault, domain of the gods. For example, in the Icelandic Grimnismal, the skull of the giant Ymir becomes the vault of the sky at his death.

In the Mayan civilization in America, which originated as early as prehistoric times, belief in gods is broken down into two categories, according to a binary distinction between good and evil. One is associated with day and heaven comprising 13 deities and the other is related to the underworld with 9 gods called "the lords of the night" among whom we find the god of death represented by a skeleton with a terrifying skull.


In Christian culture the morbid fatality of the skull is nuanced by faith in the afterlife and an afterlife. The biblical design of the skull is illustrated by the Golgotha also nicknamed the "mount of the skull" where Adam would be buried, his skull and shins being represented at the foot of the cross of Jesus. A tree could grow on this skull, a tree of life that makes it possible to compare Jesus to a reborn Adam.

ZAKIRAM
Zakiram was originally a Han princess, who returned to Tibet with a Tibetan monk and became a well-known god of wealth.
According to legend, a long time ago, a monk from Chezhatang from Sera Monastery went to Wutai Mountain to make a pilgrimage.
At the same time, a beautiful concubine in the imperial palace of the capital was poisoned.
His soul hovered for a long time in the imperial palace. She wanted revenge.
The whole palace was in a panic.
The Qianlong Emperor learned that the monk had arrived at Wutai Mountain and went there personally. When the monk arrived at the palace, he found the soul of the concubine hovering and crying in the palace. The eminent monk Ruding communicated with the tormented mind.
He told the emperor what had happened.
The emperor severely punished the criminals and asked the monk to recite the sutras for her.
After that, the monk was about to leave, but on the way back, he discovered that the spirit of the concubine ke was following and expressed his wish to return to this world.
The compassionate master, moved by the spirit, agreed to bring her back to Lhasa.
When you see the golden dome of Sera Monastery, Tudao female masters cannot enter the monastery and can only stay in Zaki.
You can build a place here to accept the support of the local population. The woman nodded as a thank you. Then the spirit remained in "Zaki",
the master returned to Sera Monastery and told Patriarch Chezhakang about his journey.
The elder congratulated him and agreed to build a small temple for this Chinese han woman to protect this woman.
For his statue, a great ceremony took place, and it was named "Zakiram".
In Tibet, every Wednesday is a good day to worship Zajiram. On this day, people bring white wine and Hada, one by one, to the Tianmu, praying for prosperity and wealth.
