Saraswati is a fully enlightened Buddha appearing in a form that embodies creativity and wisdom.  Depicted as a musician, playing a lute, her Tibetan name, Yang-chen-ma means Melodious Lady.  In Tibetan Buddhism she is the patron deity of artists.  In her wrathful aspect as Palden Lhamo she is the chief protector of the Tibetan people, and a powerful force to protect the mind from harm.
