Guhyasamja belongs to the peaceful types of Yi dam and is dressed like a bodhisattva, or rather a crowned Buddha, for he has the rank of a Buddha. He is always represented seated, and has three heads. Each head has a five leaved crown.

In the central leaf of the crown, on the middle head, there is generally a wheel, and his high ushnisha is surmounted by a flaming pearl. He has six arms.
