Vasudhara, Yellow: accompanied by two other forms of the wealth goddess - Manohara and Gopala.
At the center of the composition is Yellow Vasudhara with one face and two hands. "Vasudhara, with one face and two hands. The right [hand] in the gesture of supreme generosity and the left holds tufts of grain and a vase, showering down various jewels. Having jewel ornaments and garments of silk. Completely surrounded by friendly beings. Seated in the vajrasana [posture]." (Konchog Lhundrub, 1497-1557. From the One Hundred Methods of Accomplishment).
"Bhagavani, source of all wonders, Vasudhara, goddess of splendour and fortune, bestower of auspicious mental desires; homage to the Goddess Wish-fulfilling Wheel." (Sakya liturgical verse).
At the bottom right is Manohara Vasudhara, red in colour, slightly-peaceful and slightly wrathful. At the bottom left is Gopala Vasudhara, yellow, in a standing posture.
In this composition there are twelve figures. Eight of the figures are wealth deities. At the top center is Shakyamuni Buddha with Green and White Tara seated on the left and right. At the bottom right corner there is a very small kneeling donor figure.
Directly above the central Vasudhara is Yellow Jambhala. To the left of that is White Jambhala. To the right is red Kurukulla. Below that on the left is Vaishravana Riding a Lion. On the right is White Sita Shadbhuja Mahakala.
