Buddhist Deity: Vasudhara, Six Hands

Vasudhara, Six Hands | Vasudhara Main Page

"Vasudhara, yellow, with one face and six hands; in a manner happily seated at play. The first right hand is in a gesture of supreme generosity, the second 'raining jewels,' the third with the hand in a gesture accompanying singing. The first left holds an abundant vase, the second a sheaf of grain, the third [holds] the Prajnaparamita text; adorned with all jewel ornaments."

This form of Vasudhara arises from the Togpa Chungwa and the Vajravali text of Abhayakaragupta.
