This 180, showing the yellow Jambhala, was first printed and then coloured. On the upper part, Jambhala is accompanied by the Three Buddhas of the Three Times with the Shakyamuni as the Buddha of this Age in the middle, Dipamkara, the Buddha of the Past, to the left and the Maitreya, Buddha of the Future, to the right. The White and the Green Tara are to both sides below the yellow Jambhala. The wealth goddess Vasudhara sits directly beneath him. The guardians of the Buddhist faith, the blue Vajrapani and the red Hayagriva, are in the lower corners.
