Chitipati (Lords of the Cemetery)

In Tibetan Buddhism, the Citipati, or “Lords of the Cemetery” represent two mytholgical Buddhist ascetics, who, being so deep in meditation, were caught unawares by a thief and beheaded even before they knew they were dead.

As a symbol, the chittipati represnt the eternal dance of death, and perfect awareness. They are usually depicted as a male/female pair of intertwined skeletons caught in an ecstatic dance. The dance of the citipati is commemorated twice annually in Tibet with ritual dances.

The citipati are invoked as ‘wrathful deities,’ benevolent protectors who appear as fierce, even demonic, beings.
