A thangka is a Tibetan painting that is traditionally used as a support for one’s meditation practice. The imagery depicted in Tibetan paintings is of Milarepa who provides a guide for the elaborate visualisations that one does in Tibetan Buddhist practice. In Tibetan homes and monasteries, thangkas are considered sacred objects and are often placed above shrines.

Milarepa, (born 1040 - died 1123), one of the most famous and beloved of Tibetan Buddhist masters Siddha. The Yogi, and poet led an inspiring life of Spiritual progress and human accomplishment. His story exudes timeless themes of evildoing and redemption, perseverance in the face of many hardships, and dedication to the path. Even in the best of times, no one can describe life high up on the Tibetan plateau as easy. But whatever the hardships, one famous story of a Tibetan man has—for a thousand years—provided his people with a source of deep solace and great inspiration. This man is known as the Lord of Yogis, Milarepa, and his story is one of intense and varied sufferings, unwavering commitment to dharma practice, and supreme triumph.
