Avalokiteshvara Chengrezig Thangka

Introdutcion To The Thangka :

Beautiful Chenrezig Thangka Painting for wall hanging. Made by very highly skilled artist from Nepal. Use this thangka for your beautiful prayer room or decoration as well. The mantra for the chenrezig is "Om Mani Padme" Hum which is the mantra of Love and Compassion and to purify ones negative emotions.

Many a millennia ago Chenrezig vowed that he would not rest until he had liberated all beings from the veils of Samsara, and so appeared the first Bodhisattva. Believed to embody the compassion of all Buddhas, Chenrezig is worshiped throughout the Buddhist world.

The reasons behind the choice of a Buddhist Thangka are many and are mostly related to our state of mind. Each deity in thangka painting represent a unique quality which we meditate upon. While we meditate looking at the painting we try to be one with the deity in order to bring the good quality inside us. For example the Chenrezig is the bodhisattva of Compassion. We meditate looking upon this thangka to be more compassionate towards all sentient beings for benefit of others.

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.
