Video: Teachers with Figure or Deity Attributes

There are a number of sculptural examples of religious teachers that have small figures as attributes either to the sides or situated sitting on flower blossoms to the right and left shoulders of the main figure. The added figures can be deities such as Vajradhara, siddha figures, or Tibetan lineage teachers.

(See a painting of the 5th Dalai Lama with figure attributes - HAR #65275).
