Asthamangal- The 8 Fortune Thangka
The Asthamangal Thangka is a type of thangka that depicts the eight auspicious symbols, also known as the "Asthamangal" in Sanskrit.
The eight auspicious symbols included in the Asthamangal Thangka are:
1.Parasol (Chattra): Symbolizes protection from suffering and negative influences.
2.Golden Fish (Suvastu): Represents liberation and fearlessness, as fish are free in their natural element.
3.Treasure Vase (Kalasha): Signifies spiritual abundance, fulfillment, and the limitless qualities of the teachings.
4.Lotus (Padma): Represents purity, enlightenment, and the blossoming of spiritual awakening.
5.Conch Shell (Shankha): Symbolizes the resounding call to awaken from ignorance and heralds the sound of the Dharma.
6.Endless Knot (Srivatsa): Represents the interconnection of all phenomena and the limitless nature of reality.
7.Victory Banner (Dhvaja): Signifies triumph over negative forces, obscurations, and the attainment of spiritual victory.
8.Dharma Wheel (Dharmachakra): Symbolizes the turning of the wheel of Buddha's teachings and the path to enlightenment.
The Asthamangal Thangka features an attractive, balanced arrangement of eight symbols. Depending on the thangka's function and lineage, the central figure may be different. The symbols are often painted in vibrant colors and decorated with floral or celestial designs.
