Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche and Stephen K. Hayes

The transformation that occurs when the afflictive emotions are subdued with sharp discriminating awareness is the arising of the wrathful deities…The wrathful deities are infuriated with compassion. They are not angry. They are like a mother taming a mischievous child…Their compassion is even more intense than the compassion of peaceful deities.
– H. E. Garchen Rinpoche
