Vaiśravaṇa is in the center.  Known as the Guardian King of the North, he is a Dharmapala (protector). He is one of the major gods of wealth. Riding a Snow Lion, he carries a victory banner (gyaltsen) as a symbol of his sovereignty. In his left hand, he holds a mongoose that is ejecting jewels from its mouth. The mongoose is the enemy of the snake, a symbol of greed or hatred; the ejection of jewels represents generosity.

At top center is the Primordial Buddha, Vajradhara. I'm not sure who the white female deity holding a bumpa (treasure vase) at top left. The figure at the right appears to be an aspect of Manjushri, Bodhisattva of Infinite Wisdom. The figures at the bottom are Dharma Protectors; Kalarupa/ Dharmaraj on the left and Palden Lhamo on the right.
