ra tna saṃ bha va

Ratnasambhava is the yellow Buddha of the southern quarter. His name means "jewel born". His emblem is the ratna jewel, symbolizing the Bodhicitta, the highest value of the Buddhist. His mudra is dana or generosity, the most fundamental Buddhist virtue. He represents, therefore, both the highest values and virtues of Buddhism.

He is also associated with the Tantric rite of increase, and with prosperity generally.

Ratnasambhava first appears, along with Amoghasiddhi, in the Sarvatathāgata Tattvasaṃgraha Tantra in the late 7th or early 8th century.
