Cakrasaṃvara

Cakrasaṃvara Tibetan: Korlo Demchog (bo|t=འཁོར་ལོ་སྡོམ་པ / བདེ་མཆོག|w=khor lo sdom pa / bde mchog) is one of the principal yidams, or meditational deities of the Sarma schools of Tibetan Buddhism. The Cakrasaṃvara sadhana is considered to be of the mother class of the Anuttara Yoga Tantra. Cakrasaṃvara is typically depicted with a blue-coloured body, four faces, and twelve arms, and embracing his consort Vajravarahi in the yab-yum position. Other forms of the deity are also known, with varying numbers of limbs. Cakrasaṃvara and consort are not to be thought of as two different entities, as an ordinary husband and wife are two different people; in reality, their divine embrace is a metaphor for the union of great bliss and emptiness, which are one and the same essence.
