Seated in padmasana upon a moist lotus that blooms in the waters of the Ganga, The iconography of Devi Bhuvaneshvari is in keeping with the traditional Mahavidya imagery. She is the Shashtabhujadharini, the one possessed of (‘dharini’) six (‘shashta’) arms (‘bhuja’), in which She bears fresh lotus blooms and weapons which She wields against adharma in any form. She has the roopa (form) of an irresistible, youthful maiden - luscious locks cascading down the length of Her back, full breasts supported by a small waist, and flawless supple limbs. Her complexion is as fair as the petals of the lotus She is seated on. The hills in the backdrop are as lofty as Her person, the skies as full of life and radiance as She.
