Maitreya is depicted in three different renderings. The art work is masterful, however the cleaning was quite difficult, due to the age, resulting in a slight loss of color in places. The depictions and their mudras provide great teachings to the serious practitioner, it is like getting three tangkas for the price of one (see iconography). The cover side has a great winter dragon and 4-petaled flowers. This manuscript cover is made out of a single plank. The side and end of this manuscript cover have the "skyab dro" this is a blessing and is also called the Buddhism Refuge formula, please see iconography for details:.
This manuscript cover comes with a complete documentation package (map with history~iconography~essays and pictures about the monastery and people of the golden valley), and a Certificate of Authenticity brush signed by a monk at the Sange Monastery
