Mahakala Thangka painting
A Thangka is a Tibetan painting that is traditionally used as a support for one’s meditation practice. The imagery depicted in Tibetan paintings provides a guide for the elaborate visualizations that one does in Tibetan Buddhist practice. In Tibetan homes and monasteries, thangkas are considered sacred objects and are often placed above shrines.
Thangka painting depicting Mahakala is a wrathful Buddhist deity, who is considered to be the fierce and powerful emanation of Avalokitesvara and Chakrasamvara. This guardian deity defends Dharma from corruption and degeneration. He guides and protects one from all kinds of deception delusion, and bestows the power to overcome life struggles.
Mahakala is considered one of the most important Dharmapalas, protectors of Dharma, also known as Universal Laws. Decorating his crown, are the five skulls, symbols of the transmutation of the five 'kleshas', negative emotions, to the five wisdoms. His face is meant to frighten bad spirits away and keep away negative energies, thoughts and actions.
