This is a real painting not a print.Manjushri is abodhisattvaassociated withprajña(transcendent wisdom) inMahayanaBuddhism. InTibetan Buddhism, he is also ayidam. His name means "Gentle Glory" inSanskrit.In Tibetan Buddhism, Mañjuśrī manifests in a number of differentTantricforms.Yamāntaka(meaning 'terminator ofYamai.e. Death') is thewrathfulmanifestation of Mañjuśrī, popular within theGelugschool of Tibetan Buddhism. Other variations upon his traditional form as Mañjuśrī include Guhya-Manjusri, Guhya-Manjuvajra, and Manjuswari. The two former appearances are generally accompanied by ashaktideity embracing the main figure, symbolising union of form and spirit, matter and energy.According toSwayambhu Purana, theKathmandu Valleywas once a lake. It is believed that Mañjuśrī saw a lotus flower in the center of the lake and cut a gorge at Chovar to allow the lake to drain. The place where the lotus flower settled becameSwayambhunathStupaand the valley thus became habitable.What is aThangka?Athangka, also known astangka,thankaortankais a painting on cotton, or silkappliqué, usually depicting a Buddhist deity, scene, ormandalaof some sort. Thethankgais not a flat creation like an oil painting or acrylic painting but consists of a picture panel which is painted or embroidered over which a textile is mounted and then over which is laid a cover, usually silk. Generally,thangkaslast a very long time and retain much of theirlustre, but because of their delicate nature, they have to be kept in dry places where moisture won't affect the quality of the silk. It is sometimes called a scroll-painting.Thesethangkaserved as important teaching tools depicting the life of the Buddha, various influential lamas and other deities andbodhisattvas. One subject is The Wheel of Life, which is a visual representation of theAbhidharmateachings (Art of Enlightenment).Thangka, when created properly, perform several different functions. Images of deities can be used as teaching tools when depicting the life (or lives) of the Buddha, describing historical events concerning important Lamas, or retelling myths associated with other deities. Devotional images act as the centerpiece during a ritual or ceremony and are often used as mediums through which one can offer prayers or make requests. Overall, and perhaps most importantly, religious art is used as a meditation tool to help bring one further down the path to enlightenment. The BuddhistVajrayanapractitioner uses athangaimage of theiryidam, or meditation deity, as a guide, by visualizing “themselves as being that deity, thereby internalizing the Buddha qualities (Lipton,Ragnubs).”Payment :We accept PayPal only .*********************************************************************************************************Shipment :We will ship within 24 hrs from the receipt of payment and advise tracking number.*********************************************************************************************************Delivery:UK/USA: 3 ~ 5 Working DaysAUS/ CANADA/ EU: 5 ~ 9 working days********************************************************************************************************Import Duties, Tax:For international shipment , Import duties, taxes and other charges ( if any) at destination countries are of buyer ’s responsibility .
