Ekazati Thangka #35
Ekajati is both peaceful and wrathful. On the one hand the nature of the dharmakaya is inherently peaceful in its spacious simplicity and non-dual nature. On the other hand, when one tries to solidify the basic nature of reality with projections and the idea of a self, that very ultimate nature inevitably undercuts the smooth working of ego, sometimes abruptly. This is the function of a wrathful protector or a protectress.
Ekajati holds in her right hand a red heart ripped from a transgressor of samaya. Samaya refers to a promise made by tantric practitioners to respect the world as sacred and basically good. In the pure moment of awareness, what manifests on the spot has not yet been contaminated by dualistic concepts, good or bad. When a practitioner breaks this commitment to basic being, reality itself will intervene in the form of Ekajati.
