Prajnaparamita wears a celestial maiden crown, celestial garments, and layers of skirts. She is adorned with earrings, bracelets, and pearl necklaces. She appears stately and dignified. One pair of hands form the Amitabha Meditation Mudra. Another right hand holds a gold nine-pronged vajra scepter while another left hand holds a prajna sutra.
    5. At this time, the practitioner chants ''Om。ah。hum'' three times followed by visualizing Five Buddhas descending.
    6. Visualize Prajnaparamita radiating a beam of white light from her brow point onto one's brow point. From the throat of Prajnaparamita, a beam of red light radiates onto one's throat. From the heart of Prajnaparamita, a beam of blue light radiates onto one's heart. The three lights of white, red, and blue merge completely into one's body and mind.
    7. Then visualize Prajnaparamita and the Five Buddhas in the void all transform into light which enters the practitioner's heart through the crown. The entire body of the practitioner is filled with nectar. The practitioner then transforms into Prajnaparamita.
