Description

Vasudhara, goddess of abundance is the consort of Kuvera, the god of wealth.

Represented with six arms she holds in the lower left hand her characteristic symbol, the treasure vase. The hand above holds another distinguishing attribute, the ears of corn (Tib. 'bru'I sne ma). The third left hand holds a book, the Prajnaparamita sutra.

The lower right hand is in the varada mudra of charity; the one above holds three precious wish-fulfilling jewels, while the upper hand makes a mudra of salutation. The right leg is pendent, and the foot is unsupported resting upon a vase.

Each of our thangkas comes framed in silk brocade and veil, ready to be hung in your altar.
