There are different representations of Maitreya with different poses and gestures.
In this thangka painting Maitreya is seated above a throne in the most common position with the legs extended and both feet on the ground. His skin is yellow-gold color and his two hands are placed in front of his heart performing the Dharma Teaching mudra. He holds the stems of two utpala (blue lotus) flowers blossoming and supporting on the right a water flask and on the left a Dharma wheel.

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.
Great pleasure dealing with Lucky Thangka. Beautiful and well executed pieces. Very responsive and helpful staff. Highly recommended
Great quality heart chakra attuned bowl, fast postage and prompt replies from seller.
