Namsarai - god of wealth
(tib. Rnam-thos sras)

The great Dharmapala(Protector of the Teaching) Vaishravana (Rnam-thos sras), guardian deity of the north and god of wealth, sits astride a ravishing white snow lion holding a victory banner and a plump, jewel-spouting mongoose (who symbolizes generosity, as it conquers the snakes of avarice).

This thangka was ordered by Buddhist Community of a small village Tabtanai, Aginsky district (Buryatia, Russia).
