Mahakala (Skt. mahākāla; Tib. མགོན་པོ་, ནག་པོ་ཆེན་པོ་, Wyl. nag po chen po, but usually mgon po) — a supermundane[1] dharma protector who appears in a number of forms, such as Four-arm Mahakala, Six-arm Mahakala, Bernakchen, Maning Nakpo and Pañjaranatha (Gurgyi Gönpo).

Notes

  1. A supermundane dharma protector is an enlightened being while a mundane protector is still being in samsara.
