Eight Dharmapalas is a suite of electronic music improvisations inspired by the Wrathful deities.

In Buddhism, wrathful deities or fierce deities are the fierce, wrathful, or forceful forms of enlightened Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, or Devas. Because of their power to destroy the obstacles to enlightenment, they are also termed "Wrathful onlookers on destroying obstacles". Wrathful deities are a notable feature of the iconography of Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism. These types of deities first appeared in India during the late 6th century with the main source being the Yaksha imagery and became a central feature of Indian Tantric Buddhism by the late 10th or early 11th century.
