Salutation to him who has held pretty bright Amitabha in his head, , who is very kind, who is worshipful having sun colour, who has lotus in his hand and beneficent posture (of a hand) . In the date of Nepal Era 962 (AD 1842) in the fifth lunar day of dark fortnight of S'ravan*a (July-August) venerable Shakyabhiksu Bhavanisinha together with his family of Kunche in the locality of Noghal (Kathmandu), having arisen virtues in their mind made this "Patibharada" (scroll painting) of Noble Avalokitesvara, the lord of compassion and a conopy (for the Lord). (His family were) : Younger brother Bhajuman; sons Manbirsinha, Maniratna, Bhajuratna; Mother Manalaksmi; wife Mayajumati.

This paat*a of Aryavalokitesvara of NS 962 (AD 1842), was made along with a canopy. The god is emphasized here to be Karun*esvara (the god of Kindness ). It is also described as Karun*a-tmayam*(Kind one) in the Mangala-stuti. It is a verse of Indravajra having 11 letters at the beginning of the inscription. Aryavalokitesvara is depicted here as Kamalapa-n*i, which is described as Sarojahasta (one who has lotus in his hand) in the verse.
The donor of this pat*a is the family of Bhavanisinha Shakyabhiksu from Noghalatol Kum*Ks*e of Kathmandu. The place is still famous from the same name of Naghaltol Kunchen. (Bajracharya 1998:106, caitya lagat No.415).
