Ushnishvijaya is the Goddess of long life. She is also known as Vijaya and is a personification of the scripture Ushnishvijaya-dharani. She is also a manifestation of Prajnaparamita, Goddess of wisdom. Ushnishvijaya is one of the three main deities of long life the other two long-life deities being White Tara and Amitayus Buddha. Prayers to her can prolong life span thus she is victorious over death. She is a very popular Goddess in Tibet and Mongolia. In Japan she is looked upon as the deification of the Buddha's Ushanisha. She is also very much revered in Nepal where she is seen as an incarnation of Sitatara or White Tara. Her title is Mother of All Buddhas, in connection with her superior knowledge. That's why she holds a little Buddha figure in one of her hands.

Her intelligent white face with its three eyes looks confidently in fierce moods, her yellow and left blue one expressing simultaneously her more magnanimous and fierce moods. Her main right hand, held near the breast, hold a vishva-vajra, signifying her perfect mastery of the basic elements of reality and thus her power to arrange them to support boundless life for any one who will spiritually benefit thereby; her upper right hand is holding a miniature image of Amitabha, the Buddha of boundless light; her second right and left hands hold an arrow and bow, respectively, symbolizing the universal reach of compassion and wisdom that can penetrate the egotistic hearts of all beings and Her third right hand is in varada-mudra (boon-granting gesture). Her main left hand, held near the chest, is holding a noose to tie up disturbances, while the upper left hand is in abhaya-mudra. Her lower left hand, held in meditative position, holds the vase of the elixir of immortality.

Ushnishvijaya sits in vajraparyankasana on moon disk supported by a lotus flower. She is very youthful and graceful. Her hair is partially upswept in knots with gold ornaments decoration over it and partially falls on her shoulders. Her all three faces are adorned with gold crowns. Moreover she is wearing exquisitely designed gold hoop earrings, necklaces, armlets, bracelets and anklets. There is a brilliant aureole and halo behind her body respectively, against a tree, plants and fine moon disk. The Goddess is garbed in silk scarves, covering both the shoulders and dhoti as lower garment.

Ushnishvijaya has been represented in many forms. The mantra of this form of the Goddess, – Om immortal Goddess, source of immortality/nectar, of infinite strength, gone to the infinite, giving to/in immortality, giver of immortal life, you who makes the sky your hide mat, destroyer of all defilements.

By reciting this mantra 108 times, the practitioner becomes the goddess Ushnishvijaya. The thangka is neatly drawn and painted; it is very much suitable for the prarthana stuti of the Goddess Ushnishvijaya.

This description is by Dr. Shailendra K. Verma. His Doctorate thesis being: "Emergence and Evolution of the Buddha Image (From its inception to 8th century A.D.)".

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
