Sitting on a multi-coloured lotus in meditation, Padmasambhava holds a vajra and a skull-cup filled with a vase of longevity (?) in his hands. A khatvanga rests on his shoulder. Jewels and a vase are placed in front of him. In the lower register of this print, mantras of Padmasambhava and Avalokiteshvara are written six and three times respectively in black Tibetan letters, reading “Guru padma siddhi hum / guru padma siddhi hum / guru padma siddhi hum / guru padma siddhi hum / guru padma siddhi hum / guru padma siddhi hum / om mani padme hum / om mani padme hum / om mani padme hum.”
