A special manifestation of the Vajravarahi - Dakini is Vajravarahi [Sanskrit: Vajravârârâhî; Tibetan: Dorje Phagmo], the tantric companion of Chakrasamvara. She belongs to the group of Shamvara deities and is the female embodiment of the archetypal Buddha Shamvara.

Vajravarahi - the diamond sow [Dorje Phagmo] - belongs to the group of Shamvara deities. She is the female embodiment of the archetypal Buddha Shamvara.

The goddess is associated with triumph over ignorance [symbolized by the sow], and this, her characteristic attribute, appears just above her right ear.

Here red Vajravarahi Stands on her left leg in a dancing pose, on the yellow reclining body of Bhairava, whose head is turned slightly to his left. The goddess wears a crown of skulls. To the right of her face is the head of a blue sow. She wears a white flowered scarf and a garland of heads. She has gold earrings and gold Ornaments on her arms, wrists, hips, and ankles. Fine bone ornaments also adorn her body, including an apron and a grand necklace. Her right band holds a vajra chopper; the left holds a skull bowl before her breast. She carries a kathvanga staff surmounted by three skulls and a Vajra, in the crook of her left arm.
