History of Hayagreeva

Introduction

Hayagreeva, in Hinduism, is considered a minor incarnation of Vishnu; a god mentioned in the epic and Puranic literature. He probably originated as a horse god, and later became an avatar associated with wisdom and knowledge. At the request of Brahma, Hayagreeva rescued the Vedas stolen by two demons from the bottom of the primeval ocean. Depicted in human form, he has a head of a horse and eight hands. His attributes are the book (Veda), horse's mane, and the rosary plus the attributes of Vishnu.
Hayagreeva characterized by the green horse's head in his hair is a fierce manifestation of the Avalokiteshvara.The horse's neigh cuts through false attachments, and revealing the reality of enlightenment. Hayagreeva's anger directed at the causes of suffering results from the compassion he feels for his afflicted devotees.

Tibetans culture

In Tibetan Buddhism, Hayagreeva (“Horse-necked" one) is a wrathful manifestation of Avalokiteshvara. There are believed to be 108 forms of Hayagreeva. His special ability is to cure diseases, especially skin diseases even as serious as leprosy, which is said to be caused by the Nagas. It is rumored that Tibetan horse-dealers worship Hayagreeva because he is believed to frighten away demons by neighing like a horse. When invoked, he is said to announce his coming by neighing, which accounts for the presence of a horse’s head, his distinctive mark, in his head-dress.
The horse’s head neighs loudly, and the sound is said to pierce all the false appearances of substantially, revealing the shining reality of freedom. Hayagreeva is the presiding deity of several srivaishnava sects such as Andavan Ashramam , Parakala Mutt, and the Ahobila Muttu.
