Begtse, God of War, wears the typical helmet of Mongolian warriors with Victory Banners on top. In his right hand, he holds a bannered lance. A bow and arrow are in his left hand.
Begtse was a deity of the Mongols when he tried to block the passage of Sonam Gyatso (head of the Gelug order) on his pilgrimage to Mongola to meet Altan Khan. Sonam Gyatso transformed himself into the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara (Guanyin in Chinese Buddhism) and defeated Begtse. Begtse realized the great power of Buddhism and gladly became a dharmapala.
