Part 10: Suvidhi’s messenger-deities (śāsanadevatās)

Originating in that congregation, Ajita, white-bodied, with a tortoise for a vehicle, holding a citron and a rosary in Ms right hands, an ichneumon and spear in her left hands, was the Lord’s messenger-deity always near. Likewise originating, Sutārā, fair-bodied, with a bull for a vehicle, holding a rosary in one right hand and the other in boon-granting position, holding a pitcher and a goad in her left hands, was the Lord’s messenger-deity always in attendance. With them always in Ms vicinity, the Lord of the World, a great ocean of compassion, wandered over the earth, enlightening the people.
