Guru Shakya Senge [Tib.: ཟུར་ཤཱཀྱ་སེངྒ། Skt: Guru Śākyasimha] of Bodh Gaya, meaning »Undefeatable Lion«, peaceful, manifests as Ananda's student and brings King Ashoka to the Dharma. As a Lion of the Sakyas, embodies patience and detachment. He is shown similar to Buddha Shakymuni but with golden skin in red monk's robes. He holds a begging bowl in the left and a five-pointed vajra in his right hand.

At the bottom of the painting the Samye Monastery is depicted. It is the first Tibetan Buddhist and Nyingma monastery built in Tibet, during the reign of King Trisong Deutsen. Shantarakshita began construction around 763, and Vajrayana founder Guru Padmasambhava tamed the local spirits for its completion in 779.
