Miyo Longzunma [Immutable Fair Lady of Heaven or Immovable Noble Mind], yellow in colour, offering savory foods with the right hand and holding a gold bowl filled with auspicious symbols the left - riding on a large young tiger

Very often she is depicted together with her four sisters:

As Tibetan mountain spirits living on the Tibet-Nepal border the Five Long-life Sisters belong to the 'sman' class of worldly deities. Subjugated by Guru Padmasambhava in the 8th century they became avowed protectors for Buddhism.

Each of these beneficent goddesses, who inhabit mountain peaks above glacial lakes along the southern border of Tibet, controls a special boon, but together they are supposed to protect Buddhism.

Miyo herself gives the blessing of food; her sister Tashi Tseringma's special gift is long life; Tekar Dosangma grants whongdup, or good luck; Chopen Dinsangma grants wealth; Thingri Shelsangma gives telepathic powers.

The five sisters belongs with the group of Dakinis [sky walkers]. They symbolizes the five main peaks of the Himalayan Range, all of which stand towering at the south-west border of Tibet in defense of the happy paradise.

A manifestation of Guru Padmasambhava is depicted at the top.
