When the giving of donations of loving sunshine are in harmonious relationship
with the auspicious conditions of the golden earth, the receiving of merits of bountiful crops arise with ease.
This is the resplendent knot of auspicious interrelationship.

The images above [Left: Sculpture in Bihar, 10th c.; Middle: Painting by Drugu Chogyal Tulku Rinpoche, 1990; and Right: Sculpture by Jon Wayrono for stupa, Java, 2014] are the original Buddhist form of Goddess Kurukulla as found in the Tantra section of the Words of the Buddha Collection {Degé Kangyur, vol. 81 (rgyud ’bum, ca), folios 29b–42b.}. A translation of the Anuttara-Yoga Tantra form of this Goddess can be found here: http://read.84000.co/translation/UT22084-081-006.html].

Her lotus/sun/moon seat rests upon three ancient Vedic godlings. Upper hands hold arrow and bow. With her lower right hand she displays the 'granting fearlessness' mudra. Her lower left holds the stalk of a red lotus flower. This is the original form of the Goddess we honor as the Smiling Lotus Wisdom Stupa's patron, the Lotus Wisdom Dakini, Kurukulle.
