Female Thangkas

Female deities in Buddhism take many forms. They can protect us [such as the Tara], but they are also terrifying and cruel [such as the Palden Lhamo].

Female deities are revered in many different traditions throughout the Himalayas. They feature a range of beloved goddesses, bodhisattvas, and dakinis that reflect fascinating ideas about feminine power and have inspired people across time and cultures.
