Sitapatra - 2 armed Dukkar
A thangka is a Tibetan painting that is traditionally used as a support for one’s meditation practice. The imagery depicted in Tibetan paintings 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.
This is a very high quality Thangka painting from The Himalayas purely made by hand with natural stone color and pure gold.
Dukkar in her full form is one of the most complex deities in the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon. Also known as White Umbrella or Sitatapatra (Sanskrit), this printed thangka depicts Dukkar in her simplified two-armed form. She is white in colour with a slightly wrathful expression and is seated in the vajra position. Her left hand holds the handle of a white parasol unfurled above and her right hand is outstretched holding a Dharma Wheel. She has an eye in the palm of each hand.
Dukkar grants powerful protection from over 60 classes of spirits, especially if one recites her mantra. It is said that prayer to Dukkar fortifies our body so strongly that spirits literally cannot invade. She is very healing and helps to strengthen the body against physical problems. Dukkar’s practice is also very effective for purifying the karma of being wrongly accused, such as in arguments or legal cases. She will be beneficial for those who travel often and who are exposed to risks and dangers daily.

Service and delivery of this first Mandala I bought from Lucky Thanka was really fast and the updates were brilliant.
This Mandala is simply beautiful and I am so pleased with it.
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.
