"I have eight faces, two legs, and sixteen arms and trample the four Mara underfoot. Fearful am I to fear itself, with my necklace made of a string of heads and dancing furiously on a solar disk. Black am I and terrible with a crossed vajra on my head, my body smeared with ashes, and my mouths sending forth the sound of OM. But my inner nature is tranquil and holding Nairatmya in loving embrace, I am possessed of tranquil bliss. My front face is black, the one to the right is like white jasmine, the one to the left is red and fearful, and the one to the rear is distorted, The remaining faces are like those of bees, and there are twenty-four eyes and so on." from Enlightened Ways, The Many Streams of Buddhist Art in Thailand.
