In Tibetan Buddhism Begtse is called Beg tse chen Lcam Sring in Tibetan, meaning "the Great Coat of Mail" and Prana Atma in Sanskrit. In the Sakya and Kagyu Traditions he is considered the main protector for the Hayagriva cycle of practice. It is a commonly held belief of some Mongolian tribal groups that Dharma Protector Begste was a Lord of War in Central Asia. In some Tibetan texts narrating the origins of the various protectors of Tibetan Buddhism he was taken to be the son of a demon (yaksha) and a goblin (rakshasi). Some schools of Tibetan Buddhism believe that Begtse is a Wisdom Deity - meaning completely enlightened. Other schools believe him to be a lower protector - Worldly Deity.
