The lotuses surrounding this lama support an upright vajra (thunderbolt) and a ghanta (bell). His hands are crossed over his heart like buddha Vajradhara, who holds the same attributes.
Apart from the same attributes on the lotuses, this lama holds a set of three flaming jewels (triratna) in his left hand and does the discussion or teaching gesture (vitarka mudra) with the other.
The patched vest tucked into his lower garment is inlaid with broad bands of copper and decorated with an incised floral pattern.
