Kagyu Mahakala or two hand mahakala is the wisdom protector deity who is known as Bernagchen in Tibetan language. The literal meaning of Bernagchen is the great black cloak vajra Mahakala. He is a main protector deity of His holiness Gyalwang karmapa and Karma kagyu lineage of Tibetan buddhism. The fiercely wrathful, two hand Mahakala is black in colour, with one face, three round bulbous eyes, a large gaping red mouth with bared white fangs. His yellow beard, eyebrows and hair flow upward like flames. The right hand holds a curved flaying knife with a vajra handle. The left holds a white blood filled skullcup to the heart. Adorned with a crown of five dry white skulls, earrings, bracelets and a garland of freshly severed heads, he wears a great black cloak as his unique characteristic. He stands surrounded by the flames of pristine awareness fire.

There is very big influence of praying to protector deities in Tibet, Buddhist people believe that due to phenomena being impermanent, things keep changing and there is always un stability. So, to be protected from all the obstacles like misfortune, poverty, sickness, dullness, famine, elemental imbalances and so forth people evoke Mahakala to gain stability and remove obstacles on their mundane and spiritual path. In general people see peaceful and wrathful deities differently but The idea of wrathful deity in Tibetan buddism is to break away duality of viewers. although, Mahakala looks furious, his inner qualities are similar to peaceful compassionate Avalokitesvara ( compassion buddha) qualities as Loving, kindness, compassion and wisdom.
