The khatvanga is a particular divine attribute of Padmasambhava and intrinsic to his iconographic representation. It is a rod with three severed heads denoting the three kayas (the three bodies of a Buddha, the dharmakaya, sambhogakaya, and nirmanakaya), crowned by a Trishula, and dressed with a sash of the Himalayan Rainbow or Five pure lights of the Mahabhuta. The iconography is utilized in various Tantric cycles by practitioners as symbols to hidden meanings in transmitted practices.
