Full  View Detail 1 Detail 2

Amoghasiddhi is one of the Five Wisdom [or Tataghata] Buddhas of the Vajrayana tradition of Buddhism. He is associated with the accomplishment of the Buddhist path and of the destruction of the poison of envy. His name means He Whose Accomplishment Is Not In Vain. His Shakti/consort is Tara, meaning Noble Deliverer or Noble Star and his mounts are garudas. He belongs to the family of karma whose family symbol is the double vajra.

He is associated with the conceptual skandha or the conceptual mind [as opposed to the non-conceptual or sensational mind]. His action towards the promotion of Buddhist paths is the pacification of evils. This is symbolised by Amoghasiddhi's symbol, the moon. He gestures in the mudra of fearlessness, symbolising his and his devotees' fearlessness towards the poisons or delusions.

He is usually coloured green in artwork and is associated with the air or wind element. His season is autumn and his heavenly quarter is the northern buddha-ksetra called Prakuta.


His image in the center of the mandala is encompassed with the 'Eight Tibetan Lucky Symbols'.
