Introduction To Wheel Of Life :

According to the ancient texts, the original model for the Wheel of life was painted over the gateway of the Veluvana Bihara at Rajagriha on the instructions of the Buddha himself, who indicated exactly how the work should be done. The Buddha was inspired by the activities of one of his chief disciples, Maudgalyayana . Thanks to his mastery of psychic powers, Maudgalyayana was able to visit all beings in the different realms of existence, and to see them in different states of pain or pleasure; as a result, he became aware of the causes of these different states.

The Buddha realized that there were not enough people like Maudgalyayana to teach all those who needed to hear his teaching. He, therefore, instructed his disciples to paint the Wheel of Life, a depiction of the different realms of existence, and their underlying processes, at the entrance to every monastery. The picture is not strictly a literal account of worldly existence, but is effective in that it appeals to our imagination with its rich and powerful imagery.

How does pollution harm the thangka?

Unlike the western paintings, thangka does not have a surface coating or varnish to protect them. When the surface of a thangka becomes darkened or stained with smoke or oil, it is impossible to clean it. It is important to try to prevent damage to the vulnerable surface.
