Protective or Wrathful Deities

There has been discussion going around about what to do in the face of hardship imposed upon others by cruel and heartless men. Some propose the deployment of arms, protests, or even black magic.

In passing, I heard about the Wrathful Deities of Buddhism, which due to karmic ramifications, are cautiously employed to stop evil and protect the Dharma in the world. I questioned whether I could justify using harmful means to balance the scale of justice. So I did a little research.

Here is the best page of info I found so far on the subject. This text explains a lot in simple terms..

As I become more aware and skilled in the use of Energy for healing, I am also aware of responsibility for its use in any other fashion. Therefore the discussion and questions continue on a case by case basis as I become more accustomed to moving through these realms.

Speaking of Tibetan Buddhism, here is some great music with healing prayers with Nawang Khechog the Tibetan Flutist, and Carlos Nakai.
