Shakyamuni Buddha Thangka event showing just before reaching the Enlightenment
- Unit Price
This beautiful Painting from Lucky Thanka collection depicts the event, Buddha before reaching the enlightenment. It was just before achieving enlightenment that Mara, believed to be the embodiment of mankind’s ego arose, and sent his daughters of unearthly beauty to distract the Buddha but they failed. The second time, Mara sent his army of demons to attack the Buddha but Mara failed again. The third time, Mara claimed that the seat of enlightenment rightfully belonged to him and not to the mortal Siddhartha. Mara challenged Siddhartha, “who will speak for you?” It was then that Siddhartha reached out his right hand to touch the earth, and the earth itself spoke: “I will bear witness!” Mara was utterly defeated and he disappeared. Thus, Prince Siddhartha had achieved complete and perfect enlightenment. He was henceforth known as the Buddha, the Awakened One.

Silk Brocade is the most popular form of mounting since it is seen as having greater religious merit than other less expensive types of cloth. Framing the paintings is the traditional way to represent it.
All of our brocading work is performed by a specialised tailor with many years of brocading experience. We guarantee that your frame will look stunning and the work is usually completed within one to two business days (very large Thangkas may take a bit longer).
