Yamantaka, the ferocious emanation of Manjushri (Bodhisattva of wisdom), is the most complicated and terrible of all the wrathful Buddhist divinities.
Thus the yogi who meditates through the imagery of Yamantaka intends and hopes to develop a sense of identity strong enough to face down death, and the fear that attends upon it.
Each head, each limb, each attribute, symbol and ornament of Yamantaka expresses the total mobilization of the faculties of enlightenment needed for this ultimate confrontation.

 About Yamantaka
'Yamantaka' is a sanskrit name, which can be broken down into two primary elements: 'Yama', which is the name of the god of death, and 'Antaka' which means 'terminator'.
So here, the name of the deity describes a quality that the deity has, and this deity is named for the primary activity- Yamantaka is the terminator of death.
Another way of understanding Yamantaka is as the journey, or the path to Buddhahood, it is through the practice of Yamantaka - the practice of terminating death, that we are able to awaken into the city of enlightenment.

Mahavajrabhairava was known in an earlier iconographic form as Yamantaka (Destroyer of Death), and even in this form, he is sometimes known by this epithet.
The bull's head and fierce countenance that he shares with Yama, Lord of Death, is the form he assumes in order to beguile Yama and quell his deadly deeds.
He is sometimes associated with practices related to the "pacification of afflictions." In this context, Yamantaka brings relief to those suffering from poverty, illness, or "assaults by demons."

 Yamantaka Information
Within Buddhism, "terminating death" is actually a quality of all buddhas as they have stopped the cycle of rebirth samsara.
In this context, Yamantaka represents the goal of the Mahayana practitioner's journey to enlightenment, or the journey itself: in awakening, one adopts the practice of Yamāntaka – the practice of terminating death.
There are three types of death spoken of in the Yamāntaka Tantra : Outer death is the regular end of life, which is embodied by Yama, Lord of Death, who resides in the east, seven stories under the earth.

In the case of Yamantaka, because he has several faces and many hands and legs you need to have a clear sense of the measurements and proportions involved.
In general, it is the relative proportions of the various parts of the body to each other that creates the basic character of an image, which differentiate the peaceful from the fierce for example.
For the measurements of the various body parts we consult the grid of the deity, but ornaments and implements are based on the description contained in the text for self-generation.
