Life Story Of Shakyamuni Buddha Thangka

Introduction To The Thangka :

This beautiful medium large-sized Thangka painting of Shakyamuni Buddha’s life events was completed in early January 2015 by a senior artist Mr.Gyalsang Lama. Mr.Gyalsang learned to paint Thangka from an early age and gradually specialized in painting fine art Japanese-style thangka paintings. This Buddha life story is one of the few thangka paintings he has completed adopting the techniques of fine art Japanese style mutated with traditional Tibetan Menri style. The use of nude shades of colors which is very much prominent in traditional Japanese fine art style has been blended perfectly in contrast to the traditional bright use of colors in the Tibetan style of traditional paintings.

The rich saturated hues of brown, yellow, white, blue, and red are finished with an ombre’ technique. The rich use of 24 karat gold especially in the robes of the Buddha and his attendants adds a glorious radiating feature to this elegant art piece.

Shakyamuni Buddha was a teacher whose lectures laid the groundwork for Wholesome Dharma. He is revered as the Supreme Buddha and is the most edified person to be worshiped while walking on two legs.

Despite some confusion from people who do not follow Buddhism, it is vital to clarify that the Buddha was not regarded as a God. He was a simple human, like the rest of us, who was able to develop an unusual discernment around presence.

How does Thangka benefit us?

It goes without saying that every detail of a painting has a symbolic meaning. Regardless of your religious affiliation, a thangka can help you on your path to enlightenment, whether you practice Buddhism or have other religious convictions. Thangkas are paintings that depict deities with various iconographic elements and symbolism that encourage meditation on the teachings of the god they depict. Any thangka is intended to aid in the removal of the film of ignorance, which is a significant barrier to the road to enlightenment. The Thangka is revered as a holy item. They promote positivity, spread Buddhism's teachings, bring about peace, harmony, and oneness, and dispel any negative energy that may be there.
