The Wheel of Life Thangka, also named Bhavachakra Thangka, is a traditional Tibetan Buddhist painting which portrays the cycle of life and the route of samsara. The term "Bhavachakra" is interpreted as "Wheel of Becoming" or "Wheel of Life". This artwork is circular and incorporates various realms and figures.

The Wheel of Life Thangka illustrates the various fates our karma can produce, e.g. realms of gods, humans, animals, etc. Furthermore, several symbolic figures are portrayed, such as Yama, the Lord of Death, who holds the wheel, and the Three Poisons symbolized by a pig, snake, and rooster, which represent ignorance, attachment, and aversion. Also depicted are the Twelve Links of Dependent Origination, illustrating the cyclical relationship between our actions and existence. This visual presentation serves as both a stunning artwork and a reminder of the effects of our actions, giving a powerful tool for spiritual awareness and contemplation.

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.
