HAYAGRIVA

Indian Demon

A horse-headed giant who stole the sacred writing of BUDDHA.

He is rumored to have been killed by VISHNU when he was a fish. Not a very convincing story. Or, from another unknown source, the tale goes that VISHNU was trying out his horse outfit for his KALKI role in the world’s final pantomime.

In Tibet HAYAGRIVA is a god of Wrath, and also a Protector of Horses. He may even stamp on fish.
