The mandala is meant to be seen as a 3-dimensional structure, like a square pyramid with 4 levels.

The central square, the highest level, is surrounded by:

- an inner 3rd level
- a middle 2nd level
- an outer 1st level.

The colorful borders between the levels represent architectural features like painted walls and pillars, etc. In each of the 4 cardinal directions, there are 4 doors:

the entrances to the outer, middle and inner levels and to the center.

The outermost doors are each decorated with a wheel (the wheel of Bön teachings) and 2 sharana deer, one male, one female (symbolizing method and wisdom in a peaceful form).

Each door has a female doorkeeper deity.

- In the east, this is a white deity holding a hook
- in the north, a green deity holding a shang
- in the west, a red deity holding shackles
- in the south, a blue deity holding a lasso


They are represented by seed syllables written on the doors:

- DZA on each eastern door
- HO on each northern door
- BAM on each western door
- HUNG on each southern door

On the inner level surrounding the center there are 108 Jyammas.

100 of them are represented by syllables MA on four-petaled lotus flowers, each lotus carrying a MA on each petal and one in the center.

There are 4 groups of 5 lotuses, each group representing 25 emanations of Jyamma
concerned with particular kinds of Bön texts:

25 Jyammas for "bum",
25 Jyammas for "lung" (reading transmission),
25 Jyammas for "rigpa" (texts on academic subjects),
25 Jyammas for "do" (sutra).

Together with 8 Jyammas who are invisible behind the doors, this gives 108 Jyammas.

On the middle level there are 360 Jyammas, 224 of whom are visible, represented by syllables MA on 36 eight-petaled lotuses in 4 groups of 9 lotuses, each lotus flower carrying 9 syllables MA.

There are 108 Jyammas of the different conditions;
- 120 Jyammas of different places,
- 120 Jyammas of different lineages,
- 12 Jyammas of objects.

The remaining 36 Jyammas are again invisible behind the doors.

On the outer level there are thousands of emanations of Jyamma, including 5500 each for each of the 4 Bodhisattva paths and 360 emanations as highest Bodhisattvas.

Outside the mandala there are countless emanations of Jyamma, at least l.3 mio in each cardinal direction (not depicted). Around the perimeter of the mandala there are offerings, stupas, a mass of water (the blue border) and a mass of fire (the red border).
