Palden Lhamo or Panden Lhamo (“Glorious Goddess”, Tibetan: ,) or Remati is a protecting Dharmapala of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. She is the wrathful deity considered to be the principal protectress of Tibet. Palden Lhamo appears in the retinue of the Obstacle-Removing Mahkla as an independent figure and has been described as “the tutelary deity of Tibet and its government”, and as celebrated all over Tibet and Mongolia, and the potent protector of the Dalai and Panchen Lamas and Lhasa. She is the only female among the traditional’Eight Guardians of the Law’ and is usually depicted as deep blue in colour and with red hair to symbolise her wrathful nature, crossing a sea of blood riding side-saddle on a white mule. The mule has an eye on its left rump where her angry husband’s arrow hit it after she killed her son (who was destined, and being raised to be the one to finally put an end to Buddhism) and used his skin as a saddle blanket. She has three eyes and is often shown drinking blood from a human skull. 6.0 cm / 2.36 in. 4.1 cm / 1.61 in. Depth: 2.0 cm / 0.79 in.
