Black and Gold Mahakala Thangka
Thangka art is a form of Tibetan painting that is used to support meditation rituals. The artwork of these Tibetan paintings provides a visual guide for the complex visualization that are central to Tibetan Buddhist practice. In homes and monasteries, thangkas are revered as sacred objects and are often displayed on shrines.
Two hand Mahakala is a protector deity with a dwarf body, black in color, symbolizing his changeless dharmakaya nature. Wrathfully adorned with serpents, a garland of severed heads and a five-skull crown symbolizing five defilements, he wields a Kartri to cut ego-clinging attachment and a Kapala filled with blood to subjugate evil. With three eyes signifying clear comprehension of past, present and future, his mouth smeared with blood marks his active pursuit of evil.

Service and delivery of this first Mandala I bought from Lucky Thanka was really fast and the updates were brilliant.
This Mandala is simply beautiful and I am so pleased with it.
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.
