Palm print on back

This with 2"|5.2 cm somewhat smaller Tsa Tsa depicts the Bodhisattva of Wisdom Manjushri, [Tibetan འཇམ་དཔལ་དབྱངས། Wylie: 'jam dpal dbyangs]. He sits on a double lotus throne. This throne has a special feature in that the lower row of flowers is oriented upwards just like the upper row. Normally, the two rows are both oriented upwards and downwards. On its right side, three seed syllables [Ta, Ah & Sa] can be seen

Many people thought that [due to his terriffic image] Vajrapani belongs to the groups of Dharmapalas [protectors of the buddhist doctrine]. Actual Vajrapani belongs to the category of Bodhisattvas.Vajrapani is a famous celestial Bodhisattva, he represents the concentrated power of all Buddhas. He is a complex deity with various forms. He is most frequently encountered in his fierce emanation, in which he is a powerful protector and remover of obstacles.

It is also said that Vajrapani will become the last Buddha to appear in this world cycle. Vajrapaniis often grouped with the Bodhisattvas Avalokiteshvara and Manjushri. The three celestial Bodhisattvas are thought of as archangelic protectors, representing the power [Vajrapanai], compassion [Avalokiteshvara] and wisdom [Manjushri].

He fights a spiritual battle against the forces of ignorance, craving and samsara. He is a blue Tantric figure that is surrounded mostly by a flamed halo, and wears a garland of skulls and a wreath of snakes
