A Chengresi Thangka Painting, also known as the Four-Armed Avalokiteshvara Thangka, is a traditional Tibetan Buddhist artwork, characterized by intricate and highly detailed renderings. This type of painting depicts Chengresi or Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion, and is used as a meditation aid or religious icon.

Chengresi - also known as Avalokiteshvara  is depicted with four arms, reflecting his capacity to assist all living beings. The arms are shown holding a mala (beads for prayer), a lotus (which symbolizes purity), a jewel (marking his miraculous power) and a water flask (representing healing). The Chengresi Thangka symbolizes the bodhisattva's compassion and dedication to reduce sentient beings' misery. The items in the four hands have specific meanings: the lotus stands for purity, the mala symbolizes mantras' endless recitation, and the jewel stands for the capacity to fulfill aspirations. Thangka paintings typically have decorative backgrounds with significant elements.

Chengresi Thangka Paintings are used in Tibetan Buddhist rituals. Displayed in monasteries, temples, or homes, they are unfurled for festivals and ceremonies. Skilled Tibetan artists create them on cotton/silk canvas using mineral pigments and intricate brushwork following iconographic guidelines. Valuable cultural treasures, they convey profound spiritual/philosophical teachings and serve as a visual aid for meditation and a connection with Avalokiteshvara's divine qualities/compassion.

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.
