The conversion of Khubilai, the Mongolian emperor to Tibetan Buddhism which took place in Thirteenth century A.D. lies at the core of this art form. This very event is associated to the Hevajra Tantra, the sutra of which is used to describe Hevajra in compliance to the rites and ceremonies associated to him.
