Jyeshta Devi sculpture discovered

From the article:
"A bas-relief sculpture of 'one of the oldest goddesses to be worshipped' – Jyeshta Devi – has been discovered by a team led by an archaeologist. As the sculpture carries the images of goddesses Jyeshta Devi and Gajalakshmi, it was 'a rare and unique finding', according to the team members. The sculpture is about 1,400 years old, he said, adding, 'This is a very rare and unique sculpture had been sculpted on one stone. Usually, Jyeshta Devi is found seated on a donkey, which is her vehicle. She usually is found holding a lotus in her right hand. In this sculpture, her hand suggests 'abhaya mudra' that is a sign of blessing.' On the right side of Jyeshta Devi is her son Mandhan, while her daughter Mandhi is seated on her left side."

Spirit of the Valley

"The Valley Spirit never dies,
It is named the Mysterious Female.
And the doorway of the Mysterious Female
Is the base from which Heaven and Earth sprang.
It is there within us all the while;
Draw upon it as you will, it never runs dry."

(translation: A. Waley)
