Mahakala is a protector in the buddhist tradition. It can be understood as the embodiment the 3 roots (lama, yidam, dakini). Although wrathful in appearance, mahakala is none other than the inseparability of compassion and loving-kindness because it is the manifestation of awakened mind. It is protecting us from our kleshas (afflictions) reminding us (either in a buddhist ritual or from our wall) to remember our practice and awareness.
