Mahakala Thangka is an iconic Tibetan Buddhist painting with Mahakala, a wrathful guardian deity, at its center. This deity is often depicted as a formidable and strong protector, whose function is to preserve both the Buddha's teachings and its adherents.

Mahakala is depicted in a thangka with various wrathful features, such as a crown of five skulls symbolizing the five aggregates (form, sensation, perception, mental formations, and consciousness). Bone accessories refer to his capability to turn the illusion of death into the path of freedom. The deity is typically encircled by flames, signifying the destruction of afflictions and delusions. His wrathful mien and environment exemplify the potent and direct force of wisdom and kindness required to overcome impediments and guard practitioners on their spiritual journey.

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.
