Chintamani Sita Natha (Tibetan: yi shin nor bu gon po kar po, English: the White Lord, Wishing Jewel): the wealth deity form of Shadbhuja Mahakala - emanation of the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara, from the Shangpa Kagyu Tradition.
Wrathful in appearance, white like the sun reflecting on a snow mountain, he has one face and six hands holding a variety of objects. With the two legs together he stands atop two elephant headed figures, a sun disc and pink lotus blossom, completely surrounded by the red flames of pristine awareness studded with blue wish-fulfilling jewels.
At the top left is Buddha Amoghasiddhi, green in colour, with the right hand raised in the mudra of fearlessness. On the right side is white Chakrasamvara, long-life deity, with one face and two hands, embracing the consort Vajrayogini.
At the bottom left is Padmapani Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva of compassion. On the right side is Orange Manjushri, the bodhisattva of wisdom. Seated in the middle is the wealth deity Yellow Jambhala.
