Ratnasambhava belongs to the five Tathagata Buddhas [also Dhyani Buddhas] along with Vairocana, Amogasiddhi, Akshobhya, and Ratnasambhava.

His Tibetan name is "rin chen 'byung gnas." He is lord of the Buddhas of the Ratna [= Jewel] family. These Buddhas transform pride into balancing wisdom. He is associated with the southern region of the world. His body color is yellow.

He holds a bell [ghanta] in his right hand and the wishing jewel ["cintâmani"] in his left. His element is "Earth" and his mount is the horse. His female companion "Mâmakîn" is depicted with a knife and skull bowl.

Ratnasambhava is mostly depicted on a lotus throne with the "varada-mudrâ" [wish-granting gesture]. In this gesture, the palm of the hand is turned away from the body.
