Thangka Paintings of Guru Rinpoche – The embodiment of Wisdom And Compassion

A Thangka is a traditional Tibetan Buddhist painting that usually depicts a Buddhist Deity (Buddha or Bodhisattva), a scene, or a mandala. These paintings are considered important paraphernalia in Buddhist rituals. They are used to teach the life of the Buddha, various lamas, and Bodhisattvas to the monastic students, and are also useful in visualizing the deity while meditating. It is believed that Thangka paintings were developed over the centuries from the murals, of which only a few can be seen in the Ajanta caves in India and the Mogao caves in Gansu Province, Tibet. Thangkas are painted on cotton or silk applique and are usually small in size. The artist of these paintings is highly trained and has a proper understanding of Buddhist philosophy, knowledge, and background to create a realistic and bona fide painting.

Exotic India offers this wonderful assortment of Thangkas that portray Padmasambhava, a highly revered 8th-century spiritual master in Tibetan Buddhism. He is glorified for his teachings and great contribution to spreading Buddhist principles in Tibet. His teachings mainly focused on compassion and wisdom. He taught his disciples and students to utilize their abilities and capacity to walk on the path to enlightenment and achieve liberation from the cycle of birth and death. Padmasambhava, also known as Guru Rinpoche, is depicted as a peaceful and compassionate figure. Featuring a serene expression on his face and wearing the robes of a Buddhist monk, he sits in a meditative pose on a lotus throne. A Vajra is seen held in one hand and with the other hand, he holds a skull cup which contains the elixir of immortality (Amrit).

These Thangka paintings feature complex compositions which are very colorful and beautiful to look at. Another key element of these artworks that makes them stand out from other paintings is that Thangkas are adorned with 24 Carat Gold which gives an aesthetic look to the painting, making them a bit expensive to buy.


Q. What is the purpose of Thangka paintings?       

The purpose of these visual representations is to invoke the qualities of the portrayed enlightened Bodhisattva figure, the Buddha or other deities in those who offer their prayers before them. They also serve as an important tool for personal meditation purposes or to instruct monastic students. Therefore, one may find these paintings hung on the walls of Buddhist temples and monasteries. They showcase the miraculous culture of Tibetan Buddhism.
