Interpretation / Description

Charyapa, #63 from the group of Eighty-four Mahasiddhas of the Vajrasana system of enumeration.

Inscription: རྩ་རླུང་ཐབས་ཀྱིས་ལམ་ལ་མཁས། འབྱུང་པའི་ལུས་ལ་རང་དབང་ཐོབ། ཕ་ཝང་པ་ཞེས་བྱ་བ་ཡི། བླ་མ་དེ་ལ་ཕྱག་འཚལ་ལོ།

"Made at Nyug, given to the Great Assembly."

"Having knowledge in the path of the method of veins and airs,
Obtaining self mastery of the physical form,
Known as the Charyapa,
To that teacher I bow. Shubam."
