Palden Lhamo, also recognized as Shridevi, is the wrathful deity regarded to be Tibet’s primary protector. She is the dark emanation of Vajra Sarasvati (an emanation of Tara). Her principal duty is as a protector (Dharmapala), notably as the primary female Wisdom Protector of Himalayan and Tibetan Buddhism. Palden Lhamo is the only female of the traditional ‘Eight Guardians of the Law’. She is dark blue with one face and triple eyes, a sun at her navel, and a moon at her head, and she wears a peacock umbrella over her head. Palden Lhamo’s ultimate nature is that of a supporter and guardian of the compassionate path.

Buddhist Gods main description
The 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.
