Zache Khandro (za byed mkha' 'gro) is a wrathful dakini related to a purification practice. One makes a fire and visualizes Zache Khandro in it with her mouth wide open. One then throws into the fire black sesame seeds and one thinks that as the seeds enter the mouth of Zache Khandro and are burned, all one's defilements, which had been absorbed in the seeds, are purified. Zache (za byed), "the devourer," is synonym of fire. [MR-ShabkarNotes]
