At the right side is the Five Deity Jinasagara Avalokiteshvara, red, with four hands, surrounded by four retinue figures: Hayagriva, Guhya Jnana Dakini, Padmasambhava and Bernagchen Mahakala. Below that is Jamyang Kyentse Wangpo holding a vajra and bell, wearing monastic robes and a pandita hat. Again below that is Dechen Chogyur Lingpa holding a vajra and skullcup, a lotus hat, and the garb of a layman. At the bottom left is Shadbhuja Mahakala with six hands.
