Buddhist Milarepa Painting Art is hand-painted on Cotton Canvas in Kathmandu, Nepal. Milarepa is one of the most widely known Tibetan Saints. His spiritual lineage was passed along to his chief disciples, Gambopa and Rechung.

Milarepa is presented at the center of the thangka. It was Rechung who recorded in detail the incidents of Milarepa’s life for posterity. The narrative of his life has thus been passed down for almost a millennium of time and has become an integral part of Tibetan culture.

Iconography of Milarepa

In addition to Rechung’s narrative of his life, summarized below, Milarepa extemporaneously composed innumerable songs throughout his life relevant to the dramatic turns of events of himself and his disciples in accordance with an art form that was in practice at the time. These songs have been widely sung and studied in Tibet ever since and have been recorded as the Hundred Thousand Songs of Milarepa. His faithful devotion, boundless religious zeal, monumental forbearance, superhuman perseverance, and ultimate final attainment are a great inspiration today for all.

His auspicious life illumined the Buddhist faith and brought the light of wisdom to sentient beings everywhere.

Mantra of Milarepa

The mantra of Milarepa is Om Ah Guru Hasa Vajra Hung.
