Interpretation / Description

Arya Janguli, White (Tib.: dug sel ma kar mo. English: White Remover of Poison): white in colour with one face and four hands.

"Goddess Janguli, white in colour with one face and two hands. The main two hands play a lute. The lower right [performs the gesture] of generosity completely removing fear. The lower left holds a white snake. In the hair is a white ribbon. Wearing a white upper garment, adorned with white ornaments and white snakes." (Thartse Panchen Namka Chime, 1756-1820).
