Buddhist Deity: Shri Devi (Frog-faced)

Shri Devi Iconography

The Frog-faced Palden Lhamo, associated with Shri Devi, appears to be a local deity of the Lhasa district of Tibet. She functions as a wrathful protector and the fierce form of the goddess Lakshmi. Drashi Lhamo is another form of Palden Lhamo unique to the Lhasa area.
