Padmasambhava (Tibetan: pe ma jung ne. English: the One Born from a Lotus) along with the two consorts Mandarava and Yeshe Tsogyal.
Peaceful in a appearance with a smiling face he holds in the right hand a vajra scepter upraised. The left hand holds a skullcup and long-life vase in the lap. A katvanga staff leans against the left shoulder. Attired in various multi-coloured garments, he wears atop the head a lotus hat adorned with a half vajra and three vulture feathers at the peak. Above a moon disc and pink lotus blossom seat he is encircled by a rainbow sphere.
Seated below on the left side is the Indian consort Mandarava. Seated on the right side is the Tibetan consort Yeshe Tsogyal.
Below Padmasambhava in the foreground is a bowl containing the offering of the five sense and a conch shell in a small bowl to the side..
