Ekamatri Shridevi (Tib. Ma gcig Dpal ldan lha mo), a peaceful form of Shridevi, is regarded as the special protectress of Lhasa. She sits in a playful posture on a white lotus flower. In her right hand, she holds an arrow with a mirror and multi-coloured silken ribbons and a golden plate with jewels in her left.
