Prajnaparamita Main Page | Prajnaparamita Outline Page


White Prajnaparamita is a wisdom deity arising from the Vajrapanjara Tantra. She is peaceful in appearance, white in colour, with one face and two hands performing the teaching gesture at the heart and holding the stems of flower blossoms supporting Prajnaparamita texts above the shoulders, level with the ears.
