Who is this Devi holding parrot in one hand? Kindly provide the authentic dhyana sloka.

  • She sits like Dakshinamurthy with same Chin Mudra, Japamala, Vedas. Generally Kanchi Kamakshi and Madura Meenakshi forms have Parrots.

She is Sri Saradamba of Sringeri.

enter image description here

Dhyana Sloka of Saradamba: (which resembles Dhyana Sloka of Dakshinamurthy as Saradamba is feminine form of Dakshinamurthy)

मुद्रामक्षगुणं सुधाढ्यकलशं विद्यां च हस्तांबुजैर्बिभ्राणाम्।

mudrāmakṣaguṇaṃ sudhāḍhyakalaśaṃ vidyāṃ ca hastāṃbujairbibhrāṇām।

  • This Dhyana-sloka accirding to Tantra is of VAgdevi and VAhya-matrika. There is no mention of the bird

  • And the Dhyana-sloka mentions Her as 'Trinayana' but here She has only two eyes!

  • @Pratimaputra there might be another Dhyana Sloka. Even i don't know Dakshinamurthy form with Parrot, although there are 16 forms of Dakshinamurthy.

  • All four hands except parrot and eyes identical.So these two i think are local alterations
