Ekajati is considered to be an emanation of Samantabhadri, the female primordial buddha, and she also manifests as Vajrayogini, a pre-eminent female deity or yidam. The iconography of Ekajati is itself unusual, in that she has a single eye on her forehead and a single fang in the middle of her mouth, shown in this painting projecting down below the rest of her teeth.
The invocation to Ekajati that Chögyam Trungpa wrote is today still chanted by practitioners at Karmê Chöling.
