Green Jambhala According to the Tradition of the Kalachakra Tantra.
"...Arya Jambhala, with a body green in colour, adorned with [heavenly] garb and all of the ornaments, seated in a playful manner. The right hand has the palm in a [gesture] of supreme generosity [and holds] a bijapuraka [fruit]. The left [hand] holds a treasure mongoose. [Seated] on the left thigh is the goddess Vasudhara, blue in colour, the right [hand] in the gesture of supreme generosity and embracing the partner [Jambhala]."
