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.

Mandala

Mandala literally means a circle. The Tibetan word for mandala is Kyilkhor, which means “center and surrounding environment .” In simple terms, it is a circle used as a visual aid for concentration and introversive meditation. Meditating using a mandala leads to the attainment of insights and it helps to increase one’s level of concentration. It also helps to activate forces within oneself which culminates into “Siddhi ” or super–natural forces. The mandala is the graphic representation of this process. It is not only theoretical but practical as an operational scheme involving a clear plan for the practical realization of the process within oneself. It thus becomes an instrument ( Yantra ). It is believed that by just looking at a mandala one’s soul is spiritually purified. Thus, a mandala represents the palace of purity a magic circle cleansed of spiritual obstacles and impurities. The square of the sacred palace is enclosed in multiple circles of flame, vajra, and lotus. These three circles forming the outer rims of the mandala symbolize enlightenment, which the meditating person must gain before he or she can enter the illuminated palace. The mandala then consists of the inner square where the deity of the mandala resides.

The outermost circle or the fire circle is also known as the Fire of Wisdom
Consists of the purifying fire. The diamond circle or the vajra circle expresses strength and fearlessness and finally, the lotus circle expresses the open state of devotion, that is necessary to enter the palace. These three elements denote the state of mind that the follower or the person meditating must possess before practicing dharma.

The name of the mandala is determined according to the deity residing in the center of the sacred palace.

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.
