Hayagriva (Skt. Hayagrīva; Tib. རྟ་མགྲིན་, Tamdrin; Wyl. rta mgrin) — the wrathful manifestation of Avalokiteshvara who symbolizes enlightened speech, usually depicted as red in colour and with a horse's head protruding from his crown.
In the Kagyé
Hayagriva is one of the eight principal deities of Kagyé where he is referred to as Lotus-like Speech (Wyl. pad ma gsung). The instructions related to this form of Hayagriva are based on the so-called "three neighs of the horse"
