    1. When Buddhist enlightened deities are trampling on other beings it’s a symbolic visual cue they are suppressing our obtacles and obstructions. Usually, in broad strokes, standing on a male symbolizes supressing ego and standing on a female represents supressing desires — or both, the symbolism is often more specific. Sometimes they stand on gods, sometimes humans — it makes no difference, since gods and humans in Buddhist symbolism both are subject to ego and desires. In the case of Dorje Drolo I don’t personally know if there’s a very specific symbolism of the two.
