This thangka shows the rare motif of the pure land of Sukhavati with Buddha Amitabha, the head of the lotus family, as the central figure. Buddha is seated on his lotus throne inside a wonderful landscape. He is surrounded by various Buddha emanations showing different mudras. At his throne we see two standing guards and at the lower part his principal attendants Avalokiteshvara, Guru Rinpoche and the wrathful Vajrapani. The backside bears several inscriptions.
