in the main shrine room of the Vajra Vidya, there are eight arhats along the east side and eight against the west side of the main shrine room. They are placed on the walls according to their rank, with the most senior closest to the main Buddha statue. The two attendants, Huashang and Dharamatala are placed along the south wall. They are both laymen; Huashang is the plump Chinese sponsor who is surrounded by playful children and Dharmatala is the great Indian master who can be seen carying a basket of texts. They are not considered as part of the sixteen original arhats since they are laymen and not monks, but are always pictured as part of the group. The four guardian kings can be seen upon entering the Vajra Vidya Institute compound as the facing wall.
