Introduction To The Thangka :

Guru Padma Sambhava, popularly known as Guru Rinpoche, the precious teacher, was a powerful Tantric Buddhist Master. He subdued many harmful spirits and forces that hindered the spread of the teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni. His miraculous powers taught many disciples who also became perfect masters of Tantric Buddhism. He is said to have twenty-five great disciples who were instrumental in preserving the sacred teachings of Lord Buddha to the present day.

Guru Rinpoche’s body is golden in color, and he is attired in a gown, a monastic robe, and a brocade cap. He has one face, and two arms and is seated in the posture of a king. In his right hand, he holds a vajra scepter, and in his left hand, a skull cup containing a vase of immortality. In the curve of his left arm is his divine consort of bliss and emptiness in the form of the khatvang Trident.
