Buddha Shakyamuni Thankga, Buddha Sangye
Shakyamuni Buddha descended to the world to show the right path to the fortunate beings. This Buddha thangka is done in traditional Karma Gadri style, which is a major thangka painting style from Kham, Eastern Tibet. The real beauty of this tradition is, it focuses on the central figure. Giving priority and space for the central deity to stand out. The subtle use of colour in Buddha and minimalistic composition makes this thangka more special.
Refers to one who has to awaken (sang) from the deep sleep of ignorance and whose mind has blossomed (gye) like a lotus flower to the knowledge of all things. Through one's remaining in nondual awareness, the qualities of enlightenment are revealed, although in reality there is nothing to adopt and nothing to purify in the true nature of mind. As Accomplished of Wisdom says:
Clear luminous mind itself
Is the essence of the three mandalas
Having understood this, pay single-minded attention,
And the supreme fruition will be attained
His left hand depicts the meditation posture while the right hand is in the earth-witness-mudra. He is portrayed cross-legged, seated on a marvelous lotus. It is done following Buddhist text and iconography detail to make sure it presents all the right attributes for your meditation practice.
May the blessings of Buddha be there for you!
