Yamāntaka is a Yidam of Tantric Buddhism or Vajrayana, popular in the Gelugpa school of Tibetan Buddhism. He is one of the 8 great Heruka and a Dharmapala (Protector of the Dharma).
Yamāntaka is the wrathful aspect of Mañjushrî, the great Bodhisattva of wisdom. He is also known as Vajrabhairava (Adamantine Terror).
Its name is a Sanskrit word that can be cut into two elements: Yama, the name of the God of death, and antaka: which ends, terminator). Thus, the name Yamāntaka literally means "terminator of death".
Mañjushrî is the non-dual wisdom that puts an end to the dualistic fragmentation of phenomena related to ignorance. Springing from the primordial Base, the phenomena are fundamentally unborn, but under the influence of ignorance and attachment to the self, they rise as samsara and nirvana. "Constituted" by the illusion into compound and impermanent phenomena, they are then subjected to birth and death To put an end to death, Mañjushrî takes the terrible form of Yamāntaka, which reveals the wisdom of emptiness and recapitulates the game of the multiple in non-duality.
Positioned to the west in the mandala of the matrix, taizokai of Shingon Buddhism. He assists Amitābha Buddha, who is traditionally connected to the world of the dead in Asia.
