This particular form of Guru Rinpoche is formally known as Nangsi Zilnon - one who prevails over all that appears and exists. His right hand bears the vajra in an extended way, holding it in a sacred gesture that tames the negative power of dualistic self-clinging. In his left hand he holds a skull cup, or kapala, with a longevity vase inside, while cradling a trident, or khatvanga in his left arm.
