She is riding a horse, an animal that can carry one across water, symbolizing Palden Lhamo's ability to cross the ocean of cyclic existence. She has dark blue skin, a sign of her might in subjugating demons. Her three rounds, red eyes seek out the enemies of the dharma. She has long golden hair, sharp teeth to gnash vice, and has ash marks on her body from the time she spends in cemeteries. The aureole surrounding Palden Lhamo is fire – like, flames that consume passions and desires. Palden Lhamo has many symbolic items surrounding her person.
