Shakyamuni takes the centre of this composition. Buddha Amitabha together with Bhaishajyaguru and Ushnishavijaya are placed directly above him. Four figures are arranged to his both sides. They are Manjushri and the Green Tara on the left and Sitatapatra and Vajrasattva with his consort on the right. Shakyamuni’s main disciples, Shariputra and Maudgalyayana, stand in front of him. At the bottom of the print, Stupa of Enlightenment together with Shadakshari Avalokiteshvara and Vajrapani are grouped.
