This traditional Tibetan Buddhist art honors Siddhartha Gautama, the historical Buddha, known as Shakyamuni Buddha. The painting typically shows him in a meditative Dhyanamudra pose with his right hand in the Bhumisparsha mudra, and his left hand holding an alms bowl. His peaceful visage features a topknot symbolizing his abandonment of a worldly life, along with long earlobes indicating his ancestry, a ushnisha signifying wisdom, and 3 horizontal lines around the neck representing his resonant voice.

Shakyamuni Buddha is depicted with a saffron-colored robe, symbolizing his asceticism and mental clarity. The Thangka painting features a myriad of colors and beautiful motifs. The mudras of Shakyamuni Buddha signify profound messages; his right hand touching the ground expresses his enlightenment and his left hand resting in the lap symbolizes meditative repose. Customarily, the Buddha is shown atop a lotus base, a flower that symbolizes wisdom rising from an imperfect world.

Shakyamuni Buddha Thangka Painting are a vital part of Tibetan Buddhism, used for both religious and ceremonial practices. These paintings represent the founder of Buddhism, honoring his life and teachings and providing a focal point for meditation. Highly prized by art collectors and enthusiasts, Shakyamuni's legacy is reflected in these valuable works. As a reminder of the path to enlightenment and liberation, these Thangkas are treasured.

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.
