This Chenrezig (or Chengresi) Thangka is an antique painting that displays Avalokiteshvara, better known as Chenrezig, in a devotional or contemplative state. As a bodhisattva, Chengresi is venerated by Tibetan Buddhists, having become one of the most adored figures in this religion. This stunning painting is handcrafted in the traditional Tibetan style by Buddhist artists, making it a beautiful work of art. It also comes with a certificate of authenticity, adding collectability to the piece and ensuring it will be cherished for years to come.

Chengresi is the central focus of the Thangka. His body is typically white, and he has four arms and an eye in each palm, signifying his compassionate observance. This Thangka pays great attention to the intricate details of his physical features, including his serene expression, ornate attire, and the symbolic objects he holds in his four hands. Various mudras, or hand gestures, are depicted, each with its own meaning. For instance, Chenrezig's two primary hands are in a pose of meditation, while the others hold objects like a lotus flower, a crystal rosary, or a mala.

Antique Chengresi Thangka Painting is prized for their artistic, religious, and historic meaning. Such pieces possess great spiritual significance in Tibetan Buddhism and may be found in temples, monasteries, and personal collections.

I am very happy with the quality of the seeds and i use it to count my mantra as it has 21 bodhi, which is so difficult to fine else where. Besides that Prateek’s impeccable service and advice is an incentive for me to purchase items from him. I will gladly recommend this website to you.
