Mahakala Ritual

Mahakala Ritual

Mahakala also called "the Great Black", Lord of time and transcendent wisdom. 

Mahakala is classically black in colour. Just as all colours are absorbed and dissolved in black, all names and forms are said to blend into those of Mahakala, symbolising its all-encompassing and complete nature. Black can also represent the total absence of colour, and again in this case it signifies the nature of Mahakala as ultimate or absolute reality. 

Mahakala is almost always represented with a crown of five skulls, which represent the transformation of the five kleshas (afflictions) in the Five Wisdoms of Buddha. 

Mahakala's face is represented with a belligerent attitude, prominent fangs and an exorbitant gaze. Mahakala is the symbol of the force that destroys the illusion that hinders the attainment of enlightenment. 

The mantra of Mahakala Bernachen is OM SHRI MAHAKALA YAKSHA BETALI HUNG DZA.
