Queens and old crones, Buddhas and goddesses, mothers and wild women. The female deities of Buddhism inspire, beguile, rouse and protect us. This is a practical introduction to the major female deities of Buddhism suitable for general readers and includes figures from Tibet, India and China. It includes: the main figures encountered by Westerners; the meaning and purpose of mantras, sacred symbols, colours and art; a clear account of Buddhist visualization practice and how it works; an exploration of the place of women and the feminine divine in Buddhism; and over 20 figures including the five Wisdom Queens, female Buddhas of the mandala - White Tara and Vijaya, bringers of long life - Kwan Yin and Green Tara, the embodiments of compassion - passionate and fearless Sky-Dancers; and the Buddhas of Wisdom - the wrathful protectress.
