Ten glorious ornaments (Tib. དཔལ་གྱི་ཆས་བཅུ།, Wyl. dpal gyi chas bcu) are the eight charnel ground ornaments plus the blazing fire of wisdom (Tib.ཡེ་ཤེས་ཀྱི་མེ་དཔུང།, Wyl. ye shes kyi me dpung), and vajra wings (Tib.རྡོ་རྗེའི་གཤོག་པ།, Wyl. rdo rje’i gshog pa). [1]

The mass of flames of the fire of wisdom consumes demons and disturbing emotions, and the vajra wings of a garuda symbolize the union of method and wisdom. [2]
