In Tibetan Buddhism, a wrathful deity is an enlightened being who takes on a wrathful form in order to lead sentient beings to enlightenment.
Such deity is often an alternative manifestation of a Bodhisattva (or other peaceful figure), to help transform the more negative energies within us into positive ones.
