Om Ah Hum Vajra Guru Padma Siddhi Hum
"The Lotus-born Guru Padmasambhava, together with Trison Detsen, king of Tibet, and Shantarakshita, India's great scholar, brought Buddhism to Tibet in the eight century. Here Padmasambhava is surrounded by golden rays, recolling his power to subdue the dark forces of negativity and call forth the bright light of realization. In his right hand he holds a vajra, symbol of spiritual power; in his left is a skullcap filled with nectar and a vase holding the elixer of immortality.
Directly above him is Amitabha, Buddha of Boundless Light. To the left is Amitayus, Buddha of Infinite Life, and to the right is Green Tara. Below are the three great Bodhisattvas: Avalokiteshvara (center), embodiment of compassion; Manjushri (left), manifestation of enlightened wisdom, and Vajrapani (right), protector of the teachings and embodiement of their power." -back description
