Old Vintage Wheel of Life with Top and Bottom Torn:

The Wheel of Life Thangka, or "Bhavachakra," is rich with symbolism, each element accompanied by titles that elucidate its profound teachings. At its center are the Three Poisons—Ignorance (depicted as a pig), Attachment (a rooster), and Aversion (a snake)—which fuel the cycle of suffering. Surrounding this are the Six Realms of Existence: the God Realm (Deva realm) characterized by pleasure, the Demi-God Realm (Asura realm) marked by jealousy, the Human Realm offering the best opportunity for enlightenment, the Animal Realm defined by ignorance, the Hungry Ghost Realm (Preta realm) characterized by insatiable desire, and the Hell Realm (Naraka realm) marked by intense suffering. Encircling these realms are the Twelve Links of Dependent Origination: Ignorance (Avidyā), Formation (Samskāra), Consciousness (Vijñāna), Name and Form (Nāmarūpa), Six Sense Bases (Ṣaḍāyatana), Contact (Sparśa), Feeling (Vedanā), Craving (Tṛṣṇā), Clinging (Upādāna), Becoming (Bhava), Birth (Jāti), and Aging and Death (Jarā-Maraṇa), illustrating the chain of causes and conditions leading to rebirth. The entire wheel is held by Yama, the lord of death, symbolizing the impermanence of life. Outside the wheel, the Buddha points to the moon, representing liberation and the path to enlightenment. These elements together convey the essential Buddhist teachings on existence, suffering, and the path to spiritual freedom.

The Wheel of Life Thangka, a vintage and historical piece, brings unique character and spiritual depth to any space, enhancing the decor of your home or office.

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.

I was extremely pleased with the quality of the unique thangka I received, as well as the immaculate brocade. Communication with Ritual Thanka has been a pleasure, and shipping was faster than I could have hoped for. Six stars! :)
