The Lord of the Dance (Wyl. gar gyi dbang phyug) is a name of Avalokiteshvara.


The Lord of the Dance in the Chime Phakme Nyingtik

In the Chime Phakme Nyingtik, the Lord of the Dance is the male consort of White Tara Wish-fulfilling Wheel. Wish-fulfilling Wheel's consort is sometimes said to be the long-life deity Amitayus, sometimes Avalokiteshvara whose name he bears. Amitayus is the dharmakaya of the Lotus family, and Avalokiteshvara the sambhogakaya of the Lotus family, so they are not different.
