Grahamatrika Mahavidya (knowledge queen, mother of planets), peaceful in appearance, white in colour, with three faces, white, blue and red. Having six hands, the first pair perform a gesture at the heart. The two right hands holds an arrow and a vajra sceptre. The two left hands hold a bow and flower blossom. (Alternately the right hands could hold a wheel and flower and the left a staff and lasso). Seated in vajra posture, she is surrounded by rays of light.
