Buddha Shakyamuni, the Buddha of the Present Earth (world) Cycle, is seated on a throne supported by lions with traditional decorations behind. Arhats Arigja (on the left) and Bakula (on the right) are above him and his two main disciples, Sariputra and Maudgalyayana, are below. Between the disciples are two Dakinis involved in making offerings for each of the five senses.
