Ekajati – Barbara Berry
Original Painting – Oil On Wood
Ekajati features signify her blazing allegiance to nondualisrn. Ekajati’s single eye gazes into unceasing space, a single fang pierces through obstacles, a single breast “nurtures supreme practitioners as [her] children.” She is naked, like awareness itself, except for a garment of white clouds and tiger skin around her waist. The tiger skin is the realized siddha’s garb, which signifies fearless enlightenment. She is ornamented with snakes and a garland of human heads. She emanates a retinue of one hundred ferocious iron she-wolves from her left hand. For discouraged or lazy practitioners, she is committed to being “an arrow of awareness” to reawaken and refresh them. For defiant or disrespectful practitioners, she is wrathful and threatening, committed to killing their egos and leading them to dharmakaya, or the ultimate realization itself. She holds in her right hand the eviscerated, dripping red heart of those who have betrayed their Vajrayana vows.
