内容:Vaishravana Riding a Lion (Tibetan: nam to se tag shon. English: the Son of Nam To): the Guardian King of the Northern Direction, Lord of Yakshas.Along both sides are the main attendants to Vaishravana - eight Yaksha horseman of various colours. They each hold symbols of affluence and wealth, banners, conch shells, gold vases and the like, and wear garments similar to the King.At the bottom center is Green Tara performing the mudra (gesture) of supreme generosity with the right hand and holding the stem of a blossoming lotus with the left. To the left side is the wealth deity yellow Jambhala holding a bijapuraka fruit in the right hand and a mongoose in the left. To the right is the wealth goddess Vasudhara, consort to Jambhala, performing the mudra of supreme generosity with the right hand and holding a stalk of grain with the left. Golden vessels of wishing jewels stand in front. The gentle landscape is green and lush populated with placid animals, flowers and jewel topped golden vases."With vajra armour, a garland of jewel ornaments and the beautiful heavenly banner - fluttering, illuminated in the middle of a hundred thousand Wealth Bestowers; homage to Vaishravana, chief among the protectors of the Teaching." (Nyingma liturgical verse).Vaishravana, leader of the yaksha race, is a worldly guardian worshipped as both a protector and benefactor. He, with his wife - a naga princess, lives on the north side of the lower slopes of mount Meru in the Heaven of the Four Great Kings in a sumptuous palace bathed in green emerald light. As the leader of the Four Direction Guardians, he like the others, swore an oath of protection before the buddha Shakyamuni.The stories and iconography of the Four Guardian Kings arise primarily from the Mahayana sutras and are common to all schools of Tibetan Buddhism.Jeff Watt 7-98
