About Our Thangka :

The Tibetan word Thangka means an unfolding painting, the word Thang stands for an unfolding scroll, and Ka means a painting. Thangka paintings, as a whole, are a visual representation of Buddhist deities, scenes, or mandalas, painted on silk or cotton canvas.

Introduction To Mandala :
Mandala means a circle. The Tibetan word for mandala is Kyilkhor, which means “center and surrounding environment .” In simple terms, it is a circle used as a visual aid for concentration and introversive meditation. Meditating using a mandala leads to the attainment of insights, and it helps to increase one’s concentration level. It also helps to activate forces within oneself which culminates into “Siddhi,” or supernatural forces. The mandala is the graphic representation of this process. It is not only theoretical but practical as an operational scheme involving a clear plan for practical realization of the process within oneself. It thus becomes an instrument ( Yantra ). It is believed that by looking at a mandala, one’s soul is spiritually purified.
Thus, a mandala represents the palace of purity, a magic circle cleansed of spiritual obstacles and impurities. The square of the sacred palace is enclosed in multiple circles of flame, vajra, and lotus. These three circles forming the outer rims of the mandala symbolize enlightenment, which the meditating person must gain before entering the illuminated palace. The mandala then consists of the inner square where the deity of the mandala resides.
