Damarupa and Avadhutipa: from a set of paintings depicting the Sakya Lamdre lineage.
Damarupa holds a drum to the heart and a skullcup in the left hand. Avadhutipa points to the ground with the right hand.
At the top center of the composition is Vajradhara Buddha. Directly below is Chakrasamvara and Yogini along with Heruka White Chakrasamvara. In the top and side registers extending to the bottom are the lineage teachers in an alternating format. The lineage figures represent the teachers of the Luipa tradition Chakrasamvara meditational system. At the bottom center is Chaturbhuja Mahakala.
