Śrī Akṣobhya

The word akṣobhya means immovable or imperturbable and is the opposite of kṣobha which means shaking, agitation and disturbance, tossing, trembling or emotional. Thus akṣobhya refers to that state of perfect calmness achieved as a result of perfect knowledge.
Ṣaḍākṣarī Mantra
In the Buddhist tradition, he is one of the five transcendent (tathāgata) buddhas. Tathāgata refers to the principal lord of a Buddha clan (there are five such lineages). Akṣobhya is lord of the vajra lineage (or Vajrāyana Buddhism). Just like the lord of the eastern direction Indra (Śakra), he rides an elephant.

Kamalā Vidyā

Kamalātmikā of golden complexion and perfectly proportioned, is bathed by four elephants from the four directions (kendra) using amṛta kalaśa. Amṛta (nectar) constantly flows from kalaśa (jars) and nourishes the rivers and beings of the universe. She has four hands. In the two hind hands, she holds two lotuses and her two fore hands are in abhaya mudrā (fearlessness) and vāra mudrā (boons) respectively. She is seated in padmāsana (lotus posture) on a red lotus that symbolizes purity.

Chinnamastā

Introduction
Chhinnamasta (Sanskrit: छिन्नमस्ता, Chinnamastā, “She whose head is severed”), often spelled Chinnamasta and also called Chhinnamastika and Prachanda Chandika, is one of the Mahavidyas, ten Tantric goddesses and a ferocious aspect of Devi, the Hindu Divine Mother. Chhinnamasta can be easily identified by her fearsome iconography. The self-decapitated goddess holds her own severed head in one hand, a scimitar in another. Three jets of blood spurt out of her bleeding neck and are drunk by her severed head and two attendants.
