Figure 73 - Bodhisattva Suraṅgama

Figure 73: Suraṅgama

Suraṅgama’s name occurs in the third list of the sixteen Bodhisattvas headed by Maitreya. In the Niṣpannayogāvalī his name is referred to twice only and his single independent form is described in the Durgatipariśodhana-maṇḍala. In the Chinese collection Suraṅgama is represented only once, and that too in a different form. Fig. 73 illustrates a Nepalese drawing of the Bodhisattva Suraṅgama.
