Wrathful Handmade Statue of Mahakala Bernagchen
This rare Statue of Mahakala Bernagchen is also known as The Black Cloak. In the Karma Kagyu lineage leaders, he is regarded as the personal guardian of the Karmapas. We handcrafted this complex sculpture of Mahakala in our studio with a skill set passed down to us by generations of ancient sacred Buddhist deity sculptors. He holds his signature chopper in his right hand, symbolizing the slashing of opposing forces and emotions. He also has a skull cup in the other hand, usually brimming with blood.

Mahakala, the archetype and protector, can be of essential help, like a fearsome warrior ally, if one chooses to wage war with one's ego and negative aspects in the process of opening up the Buddha-nature, which is the non-ego, non-self, non-soul, pure and omniscient "clear light" nature of all beings. The wrathful form of Mahakala is compassion personified and expressed as the power that can be harnessed and turned against the incredibly wily, stubborn, subtle, and stealthy enemy–the self-inflicted ego.
