Bhurkumkuta, Krodha Raja (Tibetan: me wa tseg pa, tro wo gyal po). A meditational deity specifically employed in the eradication of sickness and disease.

"...Krodha Bhurkumkuta, with a body smoky in colour, three faces and six hands. The right face is white, left red, the main face is smoky. Each [face] possesses three eyes, four bared fangs and a fierce frown. Orange eyebrows and a moustache blaze upward, with brown-black hair flowing upward entwined with a blue-black snake with a yellow belly; and having a crown of five dry skulls. The first right hand holds a visvavajra, the second, a five pointed vajra, third, a vajra hook. The first left holds a vajra stick, second, a vajra lasso, the third performs a vajra wrathful gesture, and all of those are raised upward; [adorned with] a garland of dry skulls as a necklace. All the limbs are adorned with snakes; and wearing a lower garment of tiger skin. The two legs are in a wide stance, above a lotus and sun, standing in the middle of a blazing fire of pristine awareness arising from the body." (Chatral Kunga Lhundrup).
