Jamanduga in Thibetanian mythology, is one of the eight fearful gods (Nadman- Dobshot), who by their might destroy evil, protect the world, and are zealously worshipped by the followers of Lamaism. Jamanduga is an emanation of the god Monsushari. Jakshiamuai, the supreme god; gave him the most hateful appearance that he could devise, in order that he might conquer the frightful Tshotshitshalba, the most dreaded of all evil demons, who continually seeks to destroy the world. In this form Jamanduga is of a bluish color, surrounded by flames of fire, and has ten heads, in three rows, one of which is that of a bull, another that of a goat, and the rest distorted human faces; but the last and topmost one is that of a beautiful maiden, to denote-his divine nature. Twenty arms carry the deadliest weapons and instruments of torture, and with twenty feet he walks on a heap of crushed men. SEE JAMANDAGA.
