THE GODDESS Tvaritā
Tvaritā is an ancient goddess now making her modern debut in the book "A Garland of Forgotten Goddesses", by Michael Slouber You can read about her qualities and symbolism there - or here, as I update the listing.
Region of origin not known, manuscripts used are from Nepal
She is mounted on [the lion] with her left shank hanging down and the right folded in so the sole of her foot touches her leg. The nails on her feet sparkle like twinkling stars, are lotus red and marked with lotuses. The soles of her feet are beautiful with long and symmetrical toes. She has well-rounded thighs and fleshy calves, and her buttocks and hips are broad. She has a deep naval, a belly with three folds, and is beautified by a streak of abdominal hair, broad hips and breasts like golden pitchers. She has a shell-like neck, lips red like the Bimba fruit, eyes like blue lotus petals, a beautiful nose, curved bow-like brows, attractive ears, and she glows with a crown. She shines with snake earrings and a necklace consisting of the king of snakes, brilliant with a thousand hoods and radiant with glittering jewels. The goddess’s arms shine, beautified with snake bracelets, and likewise the girdle on her hips, frightening because of being made of a great serpent. On the feet of the goddess are two terrible snake anklets, and her left foot is placed in the middle of a thousand-petal lotus. One garment, adorned with flowers, looks like forked lightning in the sky. Another garment is like a rainbow draped across her breasts. It is studded with numerous flowers, and tied tightly with a great serpent. The goddess’s hands carry weapons and the tips of her shell-like nails are sharp. On her right she holds a vajra, staff, sword and discus, a mace, a shining spear, arrow, and javelin, and she displays the gesture of granting boons. On her left she holds a bow, noose, sword, bell, a threatening finger, a conch and a goad, and she also displays a gesture of goodwill and holds a lotus.
