SKU: 19305


Tibetan Gold Painted Maitreya Future Buddha Thangka 

This Maitreya Future Buddha Thangka is painted in the traditional Tibetan painting style of Karma Gadri by our professional artists. The painting is done on a cotton canvas with natural stone colors. In the painting, the Maitreya Buddha rests on an elaborately colored lion throne and a moon disc lotus seat. Here, he can be seen depicting the 'Dharmachakra mudra' symbolizing the turning of the wheel of dharma (teaching) with a semi-bloomed lotus and a fully bloomed lotus beside his left and right shoulder, respectively.

A 'Dharmachakra' or a 'Dharma Wheel' is also placed above the semi-bloomed lotus to emphasize Maitreya Buddha's purpose of teaching or preaching along with a vase that symbolizes the Buddhist concept of "emptiness," which refers to the idea that all phenomena are devoid of inherent existence and therefore, like a vase, "empty" of a self-nature. The Buddha is painted with a serene and smiling face, further accentuated by the pure 24-karat gold painted nimbus.

Thangkas are an important component of Vajrayana Buddhist practices, so this brilliant piece is a perfect gift for any fellow devotee like yourself or can be used for other rituals and to gain merits.

Maitreya, in the Buddhist tradition, the future Buddha, presently a bodhisattva residing in the Tushita heaven, who will descend to earth to preach the dharma (“law”) anew when the teachings of Gautama Buddha have completely decayed. Maitreya is the earliest Bodhisattva around whom a cult developed and is mentioned in scriptures from the 3rd century CE. He was accepted by all schools of Buddhism and is still the only bodhisattva generally honored by the Theravada tradition.
