Description

What is a Thangka painting?

The Tibetan word Thangka means an unfolding painting, where the word Thang stands for an unfolding scroll and Ka means a painting. Thangka paintings, as a whole, are a visual representation of Buddhist deities, scenes, or mandalas, painted on silk or cotton canvas. 

Thangka Paintings follow a generic principle of composition, design, and iconography. It is made following tradition and guidelines while leaving spaces for personal creativity and expression. In Buddhist culture, Thangka Paintings hold high religious values. In a way, it is also a tool that facilitates the realization of one's true nature or the nature of reality

In Ritual Thangka, we provide a collection of a variety of Thangka paintings. Every one of our paintings has been hand-picked by our curators. We take great care in scrutinizing all aspects, from the quality of the thangka cloth to its composition, so that you get only the finest quality paintings.

Ganesh
This is newari thangka Ganesh is one of the most popular guardian deities worshipped by Hindus and Buddhists alike. Ganesh is said to be the eliminator of obstacles and is worshipped daily by all . Ganesh ,the elephant headed god of wisdom and success is the defender and remover of obstacles and has to be propitiated first before worshipping any other  gods. Being one of the sons of Shiva he  bestows success in any form of work. His elephant head has only one full tusk and the other was broken during a battle with the demons .He rides on a mouse which is also his vehicle for transportation .  In his right hand he carries a mala or a set of beads in a string of thread and a laddu i.e. sweet ball and in the left hand a parasu i.e. an axe and a radish.

It so happened once that Kumara ( his brother ) challenged Ganesh to circumambulate the world. The winner was to be awarded to be worshipped by the people first. Kumara traveled the world with his vehicle peacock several times and was about to report this to parents  Lord Shiva and Paravati . At that moment Ganesh thinking that he would not be able to circumambulate around the world he just circled around lord shiva and parvati.When asked why he did so he answered very wisely that the world wasn’t as great as his parents and that by circling them he circled the whole universe and much more. This lead to his victory and as a result he his worshipped before any other gods

Amazed by their customer service and collection. Would definitely recommend them to everyone

Really Great Customer Service and very beautiful thangka collection.

This is a magnificent piece of Buddha Shakyamuni thangka. Masterfully executed in rich, vibrant colors with illuminating detail; The silk brocade frame compliments the painting beautifully and forms a focal point in our praying/meditation room I receive the piece earlier than expected in good shape; and prior to purchase, Rajendra was responding quickly and very helpful in providing high resolution picture for my further evaluation. Thank you Rajendra and surely I will be back again.
