Simhamukha

Senge Dongma (Tib. སེང་གེ་གདོང་མ་, Wyl. seng ge gdong ma; Skt. Siṃhamukhā[1] or Siṃhavaktrā[2]) — the lion-faced dakini. In the Nyingma terma tradition, she is considered as one of the many forms of Padmasambhava, specifically a secret form of Guru Rinpoche manifested to avert spiritual obstacles and negativity.

In the Sarma traditions she arises out of the Chakrasamvara cycle of tantras and belongs to the Anuttarayoga 'wisdom' classification.[3]
