Dorje Drolo, wrathful form of Padmasambhava, holding a vajra in the upraised right hand and a 'kila' dagger in the left; standing atop a pregnant tigress and surrounded by various story vignettes.
At the top center is the teacher Ngagwang Kunsang Dorje (1680-1723 [P662]), the 4th Peling Sungtrul incarnation, also known as the 4th Lhalung Sungtrul. This painting belongs to set of nine paintings illustrating the principal form of Padmasambhava along with the eight special forms relating to eight special periods and events in his life.
