Eleven-faced Lokeshvara Five-deity Mandala according to the tradition of Bhikshuni Shri (Gelongma Palmo) of Kashmir.
At the center of the mandala is Lokeshvara. On the four petals surrounding the central figure are the four Buddhas, blue Akshobhya (east), yellow Ratnsambhava (south), white Vairochana (west) and green Amoghasiddhi (north).
At the top center is Shakyamuni Buddha. At the left side is Tsongkapa Lobzang Dragpa. On the right side is a seated monastic figure wearing a yeloow pandita hat. He is likely to be the 3rd Panchen Lama, Palden Yeshe (1738-1780).
At the bottom left side is the Buddhist nun, Bhikshuni Shri, of Kashmir. It was she that popularized and promoted the practice of the Eleven Faced Lokeshvara. At the bottom right side is red Hayagriva with one face and two hands.
