White Dzambhala Wealth Deity ― emanation of Avalokiteshvara.
With one face and two hands he holds in the right a stick of gold and in the left a club. Wrathful in appearance with the hair flowing upward like flames he is adorned with jewel ornaments
and silks of various colours, riding on the back of a dragon ― sporting amongst the clouds.
At the top center is the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara, emanating amongst rainbow light, with one face and four hands, seated in a relaxed posture.
The main figure is placed in front of a wonderful palace with nine roofs.
The white form of Dzambhala, belonging to the Kriya class of Tantra, is an emanation of Avalokiteshvara and was popularized by Jowo Atisha, founder of the Kadampa School.
