Hutavahadigīśa (हुतवहदिगीश) is another name for Vaiśvānara: protector deity of the south-eastern cremation ground.—The southeast (āgneya) belongs to Agni (Śmaśānavidhi 14). Here, the synonym Vaiśvānara is given, the name of the fire in the cāturmāsya sacrifice; hence it is also listed as Hutavahadigīśa (Guhyasamayasādhanamālā 34) and Hutāśana (Saṃvarodayatantra 17). He is described in the Adbhutaśmaśānālaṃkāra as mounted on a goat, potbellied, red-limbed, having a “firepit skull bowl” (kuṇḍakapālī) and a “pot with rosary” (sākṣasūtrakamaṇḍalu).
Tibetan Buddhism includes schools such as Nyingma, Kadampa, Kagyu and Gelug. Their primary canon of literature is divided in two broad categories: The Kangyur, which consists of Buddha’s words, and the Tengyur, which includes commentaries from various sources. Esotericism and tantra techniques (vajrayāna) are collected indepently.
