Need help identifying deity

Rescued this old thangka at an estate auction. Can anyone identify the deity? It is yab yum, hard to see.

Re: Ngondro - Mandala Offering

Namse Bangdzo sells some nice inexpensive mandala plates, and they also offer a big bag of "gemstones" for about $20. Any small coins will do, nickels, dimes, all OK.

Good luck with ngondro! :twothumbsup:

Re: Cops raid at the Karmapas office
