Photograph - Saraswati On Canvas
Female Buddha Saraswati is the Goddess of Knowledge, Arts and Music, and is the consort of Manjushri, Buddha of Wisdom.
She is also considered the peaceful form of Palden Lhamo, wrathful Dharma Protector.
In Buddhist iconography she is frequently depicted with one face and two arms. Her body is white in colour, she holds a vina, a stringed musical instrument and sits on a swan.
Her vina represents her mastery of skills in all arts and composition and the 84,000 teachings of Buddha reverberate within the sound of her Vina.
Her spiritual energy in the form of sound that helps to transform the mind (Mantra)
