This mandala is also called five circles mandala and it is designed to facilitate meditation.
Each circle surrounding the Buddhas is symbol of protection from external interferences. The ring of lotus petals inside the circle symbolize purity and spiritual intention that is necessary to practice meditation.
Inside the lotus ring it is depicted a circle of flames, representation of the fire of knowledge that destroys ignorance and enable the practitioner to enter the mandala.

Among the several wrathful deities and Bodhisattvas that populate this mandala, Chakrasamvara is depicted on top and thousand-armed Avalokiteshvara on the bottom.
