Dombi Heruka (dom bhi he ru ka), (c. 8-9th C.) "Heruka of the Dombi Caste" was one of the Eighty-four Mahasiddhas of India and is important in the Hevajra lineage. He is usually depicted riding a tigress, holding a serpent and accompanied by his consort.


Dombi Heruka accepts five special qualities of Mantrayana:

Here there is the special quality of the recipient,
The special quality of the teaching given,
The special quality of the scriptures, and of the path;
Thus through the special quality of fruition
This vehicle of Mantra is especially exhalted.
