Amoghasiddhi (in Sanskrit means – Unfailing Success) is one of the Five Wisdom Buddhas of the Vajrayana tradition of Buddhism.
He is associated with the accomplishment of the Buddhist path and of the destruction of the poison of envy.
His name means He Whose Accomplishment Is Not In Vain or “Almighty Conqueror “. He is known as Donyo Drubpa in Tibetan Tantric Buddhism
His Shakti/consort is Goddess Tara, meaning Noble Deliverer or Noble Star and his mounts are garudas. Garuda is related to the Himalayas of the north, feeds on snakes and has an impeccable vigor in a vision to sense the serpent-like negative delusions that torment our mortal frames.
He is associated with the conceptual skandha or the conceptual mind (as opposed to the non-conceptual or sensational mind). His action towards the promotion of Buddhist paths is the pacification of evils.
This is symbolized by Amoghasiddhi’s symbol, the moon. He gestures in the mudra of fearlessness, symbolizing his and his devotees’ fearlessness towards the poisons or delusions.
He is usually colored green in artwork and is associated with the air or wind element. His season is autumn and in the mandala, he resides in the northern direction.
He wields the crossed vajra or double dorje. His mudra (a symbolic or ritual gesture in Jainism, Hinduism, and Buddhism) is Abhaya or Fearlessness. Abhaya can also mean “no danger”. Amoghasiddhis is associated with the Tantric Rite of Fearlessness, and with success or siddhi.
In the Bardo Thodol (Tibetan Book of the Dead), He appears to represent the accomplishment of all action.
