The Wheel of Life Thangka, also known as the Bhavachakra Thangka, is a classic Tibetan Buddhist painting which conveys the cycle of life and the samsara journey. The term "Bhavachakra" translates to "Wheel of Becoming" or "Wheel of Life." The Wheel of Life Thangka is a circular diagram comprising a wide range of realms and figures.

Segments of the wheel portray the various fates one's karma can manifest as, such as the domains of gods, humans, animals, hungry ghosts, and hell beings. These realms symbolize the different states of existence into which one can be reborn. Within the Wheel of Life Thangka, several symbolic figures are depicted, including Yama, the Lord of Death, who holds the wheel; the Three Poisons, signified by a pig, snake, and rooster, typifying ignorance, attachment, and aversion; and the Twelve Links of Dependent Origination, which illustrate the cycle of causation that drives cyclic existence.

The Wheel of Life Thangka is a Buddhist Visual representation of teachings to comprehend life cycle. It is frequently employed in Tibetan Buddhism as a teaching resource and meditation guide.

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.
