Shakyamuni Buddha Thangka Painting is a traditional Tibetan Buddhist artwork that portrays Siddhartha Gautama, the historical Buddha, in various forms and postures. This Thangka paintings are revered for their religious and spiritual significance. Crafted in Nepal, each painting is detailed and hand-painted on cotton canvas with vegetable and mineral colors, allowing for long-lasting, vibrantly-colored artwork that can be cherished for generations.

Shakyamuni Buddha is painted in a Lotus throne seated posture and symbolically expresses his renunciation of worldly life through the topknot on his head. His right hand is in the "Bhumisparsha mudra" (earth-touching gesture) and his left hand rests in his lap with a serene look on his face. Shakyamuni Buddha's hand gestures are meaningful; the "Bhumisparsha mudra" with his right hand touching the earth symbolizes the point of his enlightenment, while his left hand resting in his lap signifies meditation and composure. This type of Thangka portrays him with longer earlobes (symbol of his royal birth), a ushnisha (symbol of his wisdom) and three horizontal lines on his neck (representing his rich and melodious voice).

The exquisite Shakyamuni Buddha Thangka Painting portrays the Buddhist saint dressed in subdued robes, symbolizing his asceticism and mental focus. The colorful and elaborate backdrop is comprised of sacred mountains, divine figures, and lucky symbols, linking the viewer to the spiritual power of the historical Buddha and his doctrine. It can be used for prayer, reverence, and reflection of the path to freedom.

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.
