Interpretation / Description

Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo (1820-1892).

Seated slightly to the right side is Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo with the right hand extended across the knee, palm up, holding a vajra scepter and the stem of a flower blossom supporting a vase. The left hand is in the lap cradling a bell while holding the stem of a flower blossom supporting a sword and book. Attired in the garb of a fully ordained monk, he wears a pandita hat with three rings representing the accomplishment of having learned all of the three components of the Buddhist Tripitaka.

At the top right is the deity of wisdom Sita Manjushri, white in colour, with the right hand in a gesture of generosity and the left at the heart holding the stem of a flower blossom supporting a sword and book. At the far left is Shalu Losal Tankyong wearing a yellow hat. Seated slightly higher and on the right is a figure wearing a red hat (name not legible).

At the left of Khyentse is Jamgon Kongtrul. Below that is Mipam Rinpoche wearing an orange hat and below that is Katog Situ Chokyi Jungne. At the lower right holding a mandala plate is Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro.
