Description

This is a beautiful unique hand painted Tibetan Thangka.

It is painted on cotton canvas in classic black and gold with pink and white concentric inner rings. The approximate dimensions are: image size – 270mm x 270mm, overall framed dimension – 410mm x 410mm.

This striking painting is presented in a square black box frame and  behind dark grey board with a white core.

 

In the center of the Mandala is an Om. Om is a universally popular mantra which has many interpretations. If repeated as a mantra Om purifies bliss and pride (realm of the gods).

The Om and circles around it are drawn within the center of a Kalchakra.

Kalchakra is a Sanskrit word for ‘Wheel of Time.’ It is a complete, elaborately detailed, cosmology. It is founded in a Tantric cosmogony – a traditional sacred explanation of the creation and structure of all. In the description, the microcosm that is man is not different from the macrocosm that is the Universe. Besides these two very complex “maps” – one outside us, the other inside us, there is given a method – a way to practice and apply this knowledge, in order to achieve ultimate happiness.

Mandalas are broadly defined as geometric designs intended to symbolize the universe. The word Mandala itself if derived from the root Manda, which means essence, to which the suffix – la, meaning container, has been added. Thus, one obvious connotation of Mandala is that it is a container of essence. As an image, a Mandala may symbolize both the mind and the body of the Buddha. In esoteric Buddhism the principle in the Mandala is the presence of the Buddha in it, but images of deities are not necessary. They may be presented either as a wheel, a tree, or a jewel, or in any other symbolic manifestation.
