From this full moon the male and female Tathagatas have appeared. The central figure of this picture is again Vairocana with four faces, incorporating once more all the Tathagatas. By his mudras the meditator, now again as a lama, presents numerous offerings. At the left of Vairocana the eight sacred emblems of Buddhism, at his right he bell and the scepter, under them three garnished food offerings, still lower a monk's begging-bowl contains fruits, flowers, incense, a purifying vase, a lamp, a shell containing perfume, fruits as food and a pair of cymbals. In the clouds a yellow cap monk - probably the teacher of the meditator - and Vajrasattva appear.

The practitioner makes offerings to deities and requests them to depart to their natural abodes. He also recites the atonement verses, the rejoicing verses, and the request to continue to teach, or turn the Wheel of Dharma, directed to the teacher and the masters of the transmlssion lineage, represented here by the image of the teacher above the practitioner. He also recites the verses of the request to forsake enlightenment for the benefit of all living beings, and the verse of the dedication of merit accumulated from this ritual activity.
