He wears a jeweled Five Buddha crown and garments of white silk. His crown and back emit light orbs of many colors. His head is surrounded by clouds of light. His body emits layers of lights like multi-layers of silk. His hair brushes his shoulders. He wears gold earrings, necklaces, and precious jade. Greenish-black hair and grey hair reach to his knees. He wears jade on both arms and gold bracelets on both wrists. Overlap hands with both palms facing up, the right palm atop the left palm while the thumb tips are touching. Place the mudra below the navel. His white upper garment is light and subtle with matching beautiful skirt, green silk brocade pants, and green silk belt.

    (3) From the brow point of Vairocana, a beam of white light shines onto one’s brow point. From the throat of Vairocana, a beam of red light shines onto one’s throat.
