In this grotesque and dramatic representation, Padmasambhava takes the form of the mystic ritual dagger (phurpa). In two of his hands he holds a vajra and a large scorpion; the other two hold a flaming sword and trident respectively. Animal skins hang from his back; a serpent is draped around his neck, and the face of the sea-monster peeks out above his severed-head garland, the triangular dagger blade projecting from its mouth. The sharp point of the triangular dagger (phurpa) is sunk into a human form.

The component phur in the word phurpa is a Tibetan rendering of the Sanskrit word kila, meaning peg or nail. The phurpa is an implement that nails down as well as binds. It was thus by stabbing a phurpa into the earth, and thereby nailing and binding the evil spirits, that Padmasambhava, regarded as the inventor of this implement, consecrated the ground on which the Samye monastery (the first in Tibet) was established in the eighth century, hence pacifying the hostile local deities.
