Palden Lhamo Tsetor

Palden Lhamo means "Glorious Goddess" and can feature a wide range of wrathful female protectors and dakinis. Usually, Palden Lhamo refers to the Gelugpa version of her as a wrathful emanation of Chamunda, a wrathful emanation of the goddess Kali.

Calling upon the powerful energy of Buddha Palden Lhamo, this puja is regularly performed for subduing all sorts of demons, spirits and negative energies, and for fulfilling all our temporal and ultimate wishes.

Palden Lhamo is a wrathful emanation of the Goddess Saraswati. Also known as Shri Devit in Sanskit, she is the personal protector of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, as well as the region Lhasa.

Palden Lhamo is practiced within all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism and she is a fully enlightened Buddha. Propitiating her and making offerings to her is extremely beneficial to overcome our spiritual and worldly obstacles.

She has a blue-black body and a fiercely wrathful expression, one face and two hands, holding aloft with the right hand a vajra-tipped staff and in the left a skullcup held to her heart. The skull cup is filled with blood, representing great bliss. She rides side-saddle atop a mule. Above her head is a large peacock feather parasol. She carries a human-skin bag full of diseases that she collects from those who invoke her. Her legs are in a semi-relaxed posture and chains connect one ankle to the other.

Her puja is one of the few that are regularly performed for subduing harmful energies and all sorts of demons. Palden Lhamo also protects the Dharma and its pure practitioners, fulfilling all our temporal and ultimate wishes.
