Pindola Bharadvaja, the Elder (Tibetan: ne ten, bha ra dva dza so nyom len, Sanskrit: Sthavira Pindola Bharadvaja): the 12th arhat from the set of sixteen great arhats, principal students of the buddha Shakyamuni.
"On the Eastern [continent] of Purva-Videha is the noble elder Pindola Bharadvaja, surrounded by 1,100 arhats; homage to the One holding a book and begging bowl." (Sakya liturgical text).
At the top left is Manjushri Namasangiti, orange in colour, with four arms.
An inscription on the back of the painting reads: left seven, Pindola Bharadvaja.
