Tibetan Thangka Painting - Vajrayana Art

"The Tibetan Buddhist art form of thangka painting is a visual and symbolic representation of the spiritual deities which are utilized on the path to enlightenment. Because of the great significance of this art form it is important that the artists portraying the figures have the right motivation, have good ethical and moral values, be artistically creative enough to depict forms in a manner befitting their spiritual significance, and be able to clearly convey these values to the initiated and uninitiated alike."

Tibetan Thangka is not just another style of painting to look at, but rather as a means to enhance our own contemplative practice-to deepen the practices of mindfulness and meditation. It is also not just a representation of symbols and ideas. It is a direct experience of inner peace, free from attachment to the illusionary solidity of the ego and the phenomenal world. We at Enlightenment strive to maintain the above-mentioned values passed down by HH the 14th Dalai Lama. And while committed to the preservation and promotion of classical Tibetan thangka painting, we feel there is still space for the artistic creativity which will add to the richness of the tradition and enhance the spiritual quest of the Vajrayana practitioners.

Guru Rinpoche Thangka | Guru Padmasambhava | Himalayan Buddhist Art

“Every morning and every evening, I will come to serve you

By riding the rays of the rising and setting sun.

On the tenths of the waxing moons, I will come in person. “

Twelve years after the Parinirvana of the Buddha, the rays of blessing light of the Buddha of Infinite Light touched a lotus where Guru Rinpoche miraculously took birth, who was then later enthroned as the Crown Prince. But, he left the royal palace in order to serve a greater number of beings through sacred teachings and power. A fully enlightened Buddha, Guru Padmasambhava trained himself at many sacred places and gave those teachings to infinite visible and invisible beings. Through his invincible powers, he pacified many negative forces obstructing his enlightening activities.
