It is said that the padmasambhava scorpion (Guru Rinpoche) in its eighth manifestation (Guru Senge Dradog) removes obstacles and removes negative energy. It comes from Mind Terma from Dudjom Rinpoche and is used for protection from harmful forces.
Guru Senge Dradog (Wylie: gu ru seng-sgra-sgrogs , Skrt: Guru Simhanada ) of Nalanda University, the Lion of Debate, promulgater of the Dharma in the six kingdoms of beings. It is shown in a very ferocious, dark blue and imitative form of the mighty Bodhisattva Vajrapani, holding a lightning scepter in one hand and a scorpion in the other.
An amulet is a charm that serves to protect. (A talisman is the one who brings good fortune.) The image of a scorpion, often as a woodcut on rice paper, appears widely in Himalayan cultures for this purpose. A scorpion wheel charm is associated with a Tibetan Buddhist Yamantaka practice.
The legend of Begtse , the god of the Mongol war, tells how he converted to Buddhism in the 16th century at the sight of the transformation of the Dalai Lama into Tchenrezi, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. As a result, it became a symbol of pacification and the last in the series of 8 (or 9) protectors of the Tibetan Buddhist dharma or Dharmapalas.
"He is depicted with all the ornaments of the Dharmapala, wielding a sword in his right hand, whose handle is in the shape of a scorpion, his left hand holds the orange heart of an enemy near his mouth, gripping the same He tramples the corpse of a man with his foot left and the carcass of a horse with his right foot, his three eyes are full of fury against the enemies of the Dharma.
Nitin's essay in February 2001 at Exotic India Art.
Scorpio in Tibetan is digpa ratsa means a negative or harmful action and also, a threat . As in the symbolism of Beg-tse, he evokes the power of the Buddha-Dharma to turn bad circumstances, even mortal, into beneficial.
For example, in the fire puja for Vajradaka (Tib. Dorje Khadro ) who is a fierce and wrathful deity invoked to purify negative actions, black sesame seeds are used to represent problems and regrets. They are arranged in the shape of a scorpion which is then consumed by fire while the practitioners visualize all the physical, psychological and emotional obstacles annihilated with compassion by Dorje Khadro who joyfully devours them for us.
The tradition of the scorpion's transformative power makes it an appropriate symbol for the Vajrayana or tantric Buddhist masters. It is often used as a seal or personal stamp.
This stylized scorpion has 3 eyes, 8 five-segment legs and a 5-jointtail. The figures total 52, the number of weeks in a year. The print can be coloured blue, green and red to represent one of the three traditional elements: space/ether, air and fire. The Ngak'chang Rinpoche has a scorpion seal, and the red scorpion of Ch-gyam Trungpa Rinpoche can sometimes be seen on his calligraphy.
