Amitabha Buddha Thangka 

Introduction To The Thangka :

Among Mahayana Buddhism, Amitabha is also known as Amitayus, the great rescuer Buddha, notably in the Pure Land sects. In Tibet and Nepal, Amitabha was never as popular as a savior figure as he was in East Asia, but he is regarded as one of the five "self-born" buddhas (Dhyani-buddhas) who have existed forever. Amitabha is also known as Amitayus, or "Infinite Life," since he bestows longevity. In China and Japan, the two names are sometimes interchanged, but in Tibet, the two are never confused, and Amitayus is worshiped in a special rite for achieving long life. He is represented with jewelry and a crown on his head, holding the ambrosia vase from which the eternal life diamonds descend.

How does Thangka benefit us?

It goes without saying that every detail of a painting has a symbolic meaning. Regardless of your religious affiliation, a thangka can help you on your path to enlightenment, whether you practice Buddhism or have other religious convictions. Thangkas are paintings that depict deities with various iconographic elements and symbolism that encourage meditation on the teachings of the god they depict. Any thangka is intended to aid in the removal of the film of ignorance, which is a significant barrier to the road to enlightenment. The Thangka is revered as a holy item. They promote positivity, spread Buddhism's teachings, bring about peace, harmony, and oneness, and dispel any negative energy that may be there.
