Description

Thangka brocade is the integration of decorative fabric with raised patterns and metallic threads, usually made of silk, for the background and border of traditional Tibetan Buddhist artwork pieces, including thangkas. Brocade fabric is artistically selected to harmoniously pair with the painting's theme and colors, enriching and elevating the composition's visual appeal and sacredness.

Vajrapani is revered as an embodiment of strength and a guardian of legendry Buddhist teachings.Legend states he subdued Nagpo Tsalak and obtained the title "Conqueror of the Four Quarters". He vowed to spread the knowledge of a thousand Buddhas for this age. He is also said to have numerous divine abodes, which can only be accessed by those who know the paths to reach them. Among these is Chang Lo Chen, in Tibetan or kavati in Sanskrit, where Vajrapani himself resides. The midnight blue complexion of this deity reveals its complete absorption into the Dharmakaya - the blissful Truth Body. Despite seeming wrathful, his rage merely safeguards the dharma from those who would destroy it. Representing knowledge from the Buddha teachings, the vajra held in the right hand symbolizes power, wisdom and compassion needed for enlightenment. He is often seen in a triad with Manjushri and Avalokiteshvara called Rigsum Gonpo.

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.
