Stupa (English: reliquary mound) symbolizing the ultimate state of a buddha - the dharmakaya - truth body. In the domed center is the goddess Prajnaparamita. Below that is the buddha Akshobhya on the lowest layered tier. At the bottom center is the wrathful bodhisattva Vajrapani surrounded by donor figures. At the top center are the Five Celestial Buddhas flanked by two bodhisattvas.
