Description Shakyamuni is depicted on the night of his enlightenment at Bodhgaya. He is flanked by two bodhisattvas (probably Avalokiteshvara and Maitreya, whose statues once stood beside the principal image at the Bodhgaya temple). Around the edge is an often-repeated text stating that Shakyamuni taught how mental phenomena arise and how they can be eliminated.
