Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter of part 4 of the book deals with the identification of images and of goddesses, and what the iconography of the images reveals to us about the way in which the goddess whom they represent was conceptualized. This part is divided into two chapters, addressing each of these Sarasvatī: the first centers on the identification of early images of Sarasvatī and the second on the identification of images corresponding to the eight-armed battle goddess appearing in the Sutra of Golden Light.

Keywords: goddess Sarasvatī; images
