Padmasambhava (Tibetan: pe ma jung ne): peaceful with one face and two hands holding to the heart a gold vajra scepter and with the left in the lap a white skullcup containing a long-life vase filled with the nectar of immortality.
At the top center is the primordial buddha Samantabhadra with the three buddhas of the past, present and future immediately below. At the sides and below are various scenes of Padmasambhava, in a variety of forms, protecting from various dangers such as enemies, daemons and the like.
