The furious wrathful horse-faced deity Hayagriva has the ability to expel unconverted evil entities. The Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions have also recognized multiple deities as representations of numerous buddhas and bodhisattvas.
In Tibetan Buddhism, Lord Hayagriva is a wrathful form of Avalokitesvara. There are said to be 108 different varieties of Hayagriva. Avalokitesvara, a Bodhisattva, is one of the most well-known deities in Buddhism's Mahayana pantheon. In the Mahāvirocana sūtra, Hayagrīva is described as a Vidyaraja who is situated next to the figure of Avalokitesvara in the depiction of the vast Magic circle or Mandala. Additionally, according to renowned Buddhist missionary Bodhiruci, Vidyaraja Hayagriva was associated with Amoghapasa as a unique element of Avalokitesvara.
