Kumchok Jampel Tropa, Yamantaka, Slayer of the Lord of Death

"With your single vajra-mouth of inseparable bliss and emptiness,
In an instant you devour the stream of becoming, samsara and nirvana,
And all the flux of space and time, you the Executioner of Yama:
Homage to Kumchok Jampel Tropa."

(Gomchan Oleshe, trans. Keith Dowman, A Treasury of Drawings of Buddhas,
Deities, and Lamas of Tibet, The Nyingma Icons)
