 Simhamukha or Senge Dongma can be translated into English as Lion-Faced Dakini. According to the Indian traditions followed by the Sarma schools, the dakini Simhamukha is a tutelary deity arising out of the Chakrasamvara cycle of Tantras and belongs to the Anuttarayoga 'wisdom' classification. The Sarma schools' Simhamukha is unrelated to the deity of the same name and appearance which arose in the later indigenous Tibetan Nyingma 'terma' (treasure) traditions, where she is regarded as the secret form of Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava). According to the Nyingma school, this dakini and female tantric Buddha is the principal dakini teacher and one of the principal fierce manifestations of Padmasambhava, the 8th Century mahasiddha, claimed to be the founder of the same school. As such, she is connected with many ceremonies of the Dzogchen tradition. A fierce dakini, she is also one of the Phramenma, a group of female deities from the Bardo Thödol, or 'Tibetan Book of the Dead'. The female lama Jetsun Lochen (1865- 1951) founded a Simhamukha practice lineage.

RIGPA SHEDRA names him Senge Dradok describing him to be one of the eight principal forms assumed by Guru Rinpoche at different points in his life, Senge Dradok's activity being "the subjugation of non-buddhists".dred upholders of wrong views in debate at Bodhgaya. He reversed their magic with the aid of a wrathful mantra given him by the lion-faced dakini Marajita. ,

Simhamukha is iconographically represented as a wrathful deity who is usually depicted as a dark blue, or maroon, coloured lion-faced female and is associated with the direction East. As Simhavaktra, an alternate form of Simhamukha, she is also an attendant of the Dharmapala Palden Lhamo, in which case she is depicted as carrying both a kapala, or skullcup, and a kartika, or ritual knife.

According to Sengdongma (lion-faced dakini) is a wrathful manifestation of Padmasambhava [Guru Rinpoche] who eliminates obstacles, whereas Sinhavaktra is a dark blue Lion-head Dakini who dispels obstacles to enlightenment. She holds a broad-bladed knife and skull cup.
