Oil Varnished Heruka Mandala Thangka

Introduction To The Thangka :

In Tibetan Buddhist practice, mandalas represent the pure and sacred space consecrated by the power of a buddha or other deity. Through concentrated meditation on the mandala, a monk learns information about the deity that is conveyed in the art. Beyond this, he strives to “enter” the mandala, not only invoking the qualities of the deity but internalizing them himself. A mandala is a representation of the cosmic, the universe, in a circular pattern that leads to a central point. As such, it is a symbol or wholeness, of beginning and end.

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.
