SKU: 18770


Vajrayogini Thangka, Traditional Tibetan Buddhist Painting in precious stone color and 24K Gold

We take delight in making this Vajrayogini thangka.

In Vajrayana practice, Vajrayogini is the most renowned female meditational deity. In this Vajrayogini thangka painting, she holds up a vajra-handled curved flaying knife and drinks from a skull bowl. A garland of freshly severed heads hangs down almost to the ankle of her left leg. The right leg is bent and brought up to her inner thigh in a dancer's pose. 

Vajrayogini is beautiful, the most heavenly of all women.
But it is not her beauty that attracts.
Rather, it is her promise,
the potential of controlling the ego and its cravings,
that draws the practitioner.
Her relative beauty is but a metaphor
for that which is absolutely beautiful- the Void State. (shunyata)

The style is Kadampa style. It is difficult and uncommon to draw. As you can see there are many minute linings the artist has to keep on drawing. It has specific patterns and motifs which you will never find in another school of Tibetan thangka. Only senior artists can do this type of work. You need a skilled hand and high focus.

All the attributes and emblem are done according to Buddhist text and iconography. We take delight to share our Vajrayogini with you all.

May the blessings of Dakini be there on your path.
