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)
Amitabha's Pure Land is depicted in a way designed to attract believers. In the Pure Land there is no sickness, old age, or death. The sufferings and difficulties of this world do not exist. Those born in the Pure Land come forth there from lotus flowers, not from a woman's womb in pain and blood, and once born they are received and welcome by Amitabha and his assistants. They receive immortal, transformed bodies, and are beyond the danger of falling back into lesser incarnations. They are in the direct presence of Amitabha Buddha and the great bodhisattvas Kuan-yin (Avalokitesvara) and Shih-chih (Mahasthamaprapta), who aid in their ultimate enlightenment.
