Tibetan: Tritsug Gyalwa (ston pa khri g.tsug rgyal ba).

Tritsug Gyalwa is the name of Tonpa Shenrab towards the end of his life when he renounced worldly existence and took on the role of an ascetic wanderer. In this guise he has the classic Buddha Appearance. Four of his sons also renounced worldly life and are often depicted standing to the left and right side of Titsug Gyalwa.
