Description

The Wheel of Life Brocade Thangka is a special type of thangka painting in which the Wheel of Life is shown in a brocade border or frame. The Wheel of Life, also known as the Bhavacakra, is a picture that symbolizes both the cycle of existence and the core ideas of Buddhism.

The Wheel of Life has a large wheel with numerous concentric rings is a common feature of Thangka, and each ring is adorned with a variety of intricate themes and symbols. The wheel's primary image typically has a scary person clutching it, denoting impermanence and the impending arrival of death. Parts of the wheel that circle the center hub show the Six realms, which are the worlds of gods, demigods, people, animals, voracious ghosts, and hell.

There are depictions of beings who reside in every realm and experience the positive and negative aspects of each level. These sceneries serve as visual depictions of the cycle of birth, aging, disease, death, and rebirth, highlighting the transient and unsatisfactory aspect of existence. The border or frame for the Wheel of Life Thangka is made of a carefully woven silk brocade with decorative motifs and designs. The artwork gains a sense of elegance and refinement from the brocade, which also heightens its seriousness.

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.
