Description of Mahamayuri
Mahamayuri, also known as the “Queen of the secret sciences” and the “Godmother of Buddha,” is also one of Buddhism’s five guardian goddesses. She is revered for her legendary ability to shield followers from both physical and spiritual poisoning. The Mahamayuri offers mystical cures for poisons, snakebites, and other afflictions. According to legend, she was inspired by a Hindu goddess of the same name. She is frequently shown with four arms and riding on top of a peacock. The objects she is holding can vary depending on the tradition, but typical items include a citron, a bael fruit, a lotus flower, and a peacock tail feather. She is sitting in the half (vajrasana) pose, using the moon as a backrest, and is dressed in serene ornaments and attire.

Buddhist Gods main description
Buddhist GodsThe Buddhist pantheon comprises hundreds of Gods and Goddesses. They are intended to illustrate the multiple aspects of enlightenment, including its wrathful and furious sides, as well as its peaceful and beneficial aspects. In Mahayana Buddhism, gods, goddesses, and other spiritual beings play a much bigger role than in Theravada Buddhism. They symbolize the energies, forces, and entities that surround and fill human life. They also mirror the human spirit's deeper depths, reflecting attributes that can be awakened through spiritual practice. Voluptuous tree spirits, maternal nurturers, elevated knowledge figures, benevolent healers, potent protectors, cosmic mothers of liberation, and dancing female Buddhas are all part of the pantheon. Childbirth, agriculture, fortune, longevity, art, music, knowledge, love, magic, and occult rituals are all overseen by gods, goddesses, and other spiritual beings. Some of them protect against diseases, snakebites, demons, curses, untimely death, and all other fatal dangers. There are also gods, goddesses, and other spiritual beings that aid practitioners in their quest for knowledge, mental cleansing, higher rebirth, and complete spiritual enlightenment.
