Shakyamuni Buddha and depictions of the fifteen miracles at Shravasti.

Sanskrit: Buddha Shakyamuni Tibetan: Sang gye sha kya tu pa

According to the life story of Shakyamuni Buddha he once stayed at Shravasti in Northern India and over the course of fifteen days performed fifteen miracles or magical displays. Generally paintings of the miracles are included in the sets of paintings depicting the life story. There is some evidence that suggests that on occasion the Fifteen Miracles may have been treated as a separate topic from the general life story and painted separately.
