Vasudhara - “Goddess of Fertility and Abundance”

Vasudhara is a Buddhist deity popularly worshipped in the Kathmandu valley as the goddess of fertility and abundance. The worship of Vasudhara never gained much acceptance among the Tibetans, and images of her are therefore rare in Tibet and were in most cases imported from Nepal for personal use of Newars living in Tibet.
