HARITI

Indian Children's Goddess

Also known as Haritiki

Buddhist Protector of Children

Originally an Iranian folk figure who was absorbed into the blossoming Buddhist movement. She is a Goddess of Children and she is always on their side.

Her husband PANCIKA is the head of the YAKSHAS and together they have five hundred children. As a Goddess of Children she must really really like kids. Or perhaps she gets some kind of discount.
