PALDEN LHAMO MANDALA
Mandala, the transliteration of the sanskrit word mandala, is called “Kyil, Khor” in Tibetan. The early mandala was a square or round alter constructed to prevent to intrusion of evil spirits and demons during the practice of esoteric Buddhism in ancient India. It has the function of perfectly accumulationg all merits, generating Buddhas and assembling the whole pantheon together from the ten directions and the three periods for the purpost of attaining complete enlightenment. Its shape and structure is usually in a square of round or in Both shapes, but its making must be strictly in adherence the rules in texts, without any changing.
At the center of the mandala is Palden Lhamo
She is the chief guardian-goddess of the Tibetan pantheon, the only female among the Eight Guardians of the Law.
As the special protectress of the Dalai and Panchen Lamas, she is venerated by the followers of the Gelug order all over Asia.
Lhamo is shown crossing the sea of blood on her mule. She killed her son, who was an enemy of Buddhism, and used his flayed skin as a saddle blanket.
There are eight Guardians of the Law in the Tibetan pantheon. This one is the only female – Palden Lhamo. She is the special protector of the Dalai and Panchen Lamas, and is venerated in Tibet, China and Mongolia.
Her red hair marks her as a wrathful goddess. Here she rides sideways on her mule, who is carrying her across a sea of blood.
Her pedestal is quite different from the other Guardians. Instead of lotus blossoms, she is surrounded by the Himalayan ranges, enclosing a sea littered with corpses, skulls, body parts and entrails.
Lhamo is wearing a crown of five skulls and garland of freshly severed heads. Look carefully at her flaming hair and you will find a snake stretched behind the skulls.
