Sri Nalanda-Mahavihariy-arya-bhikshu-sanghasya 'of the community of Venerable Monks of the Great Monastery at Nalanda'. Above the inscription we see the dharmachakra with a deer on each side suggesting the scene of the Deer park of Sarnath where Buddha first preached the Law, the motif was also adopted by Pala emperors.
