Palden Lhamo

Introduction To The Thangka :

In the Vajrayana tradition, Palden Lhamo (Sanskrit: Shri Devi; Mongolian: Ukin Tengri) is a Dharmapala who guards the Buddha's teachings. She is the consort of Mahakala and one of the five Tseringma sisters, also known as the Long-life Sisters. She is also known as Magzor Gyalmo, the Queen of Armies, and is said to be a vengeful manifestation of Saraswati. Any sincere exercise in her practice is always accompanied by a mental image of Manjushri, the bodhisattva of knowledge, in a furious state. Many Gelugpa and Sakya paintings depict this god, which is present in most Tibetan ancestries.
