Thangkas are Tibetan Buddhist paintings on cotton/silk canvasses, featuring deities, spiritual scenes or mandalas. Ekajati is a fierce and powerful female deity, often invoked to remove obstacles and protect practitioners. Ekajati Thangka paintings are artistic depictions of her that serve as powerful reminders of the practitioner's journey, with fine lines, intricate details, and brilliant colors.

Ekajati is depicted as a powerful, red deity with one eye. She stands on a corpse, signifying her power over ego and death. Her long, disheveled hair symbolizes her untamed nature. Ekajati is typically holding weapons, like a flaying blade and skull cup, filled with blood. Her single eye is thought to represent the "eye of wisdom" or the "eye of reality," indicating her insight that goes beyond illusions. Her bold image conveys her ability to cut through obstacles and lack of knowledge on the way to enlightenment. She is linked to the Dzogchen tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, a training focused on understanding one's true self. She is a guardian and protector of the Dzogchen and treasure teachings hidden by Padmasambhava.

Ekajati Thangka Paintings are renowned for their intricate detail, bright colors, and spiritual symbolism, and are often utilized as aids for meditation, visualization, and devotion in the Dzogchen tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. People often invoke Ekajati to receive her protective qualities and help to overcome inner and outer obstacles. Crafted with skill and reverence, these distinct works of art make a captivating addition to any space.

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.
