A Shakyamuni Buddha Thangka Painting, a traditional Tibetan Buddhist painting, depicts Siddhartha Gautama, known as the founder of Buddhism. Represented in a posture known as the "earth-touching mudra" or "Bhumisparsha mudra," Shakyamuni Buddha's right hand is extended towards the ground and the left hand rests in his lap, palm up. His expression is typically serene and benevolent.

The primary symbolism of the Shakyamuni Buddha Thangka is based on the moment when he attained enlightenment beneath the Bodhi tree. The gesture of touching the earth, called the earth-touching mudra, marks the point of his understanding and victory of ignorance and delusion. Displayed with a radiant halo behind his head, this symbolizes his enlightenment and spiritual aura. This halo of light may feature intricate designs and patterns.

This Thangka with Shakyamuni Buddha as the central figure come with additional elements such as lotus flowers, offering bowls, and symbols. These elements further enhance the composition and express particular Buddhist teachings. Used in various Tibetan Buddhist rituals, ceremonies, and meditations, these Thangkas serve to remind practitioners of the Buddha's wisdom and the path to enlightenment. With its place in Tibetan and Himalayan regions, Shakyamuni Buddha Thangka painting stands for the enlightenment and teachings of the Buddha. As a revered and sacred object, it is used for meditation, devotion, and contemplation in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

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.
