Description

Shakyamuni Buddha Traditional Thangka is handpainted by using traditional colors on cotton canvas. The size of this thangka is  50 x 38cm.

Shakyamuni Buddha is painted with golden skin sitting in a lotus seat also called the meditative seat upon a white moon disc which represents the male principle of method which itself is upon a lotus throne.

His left-hand touches the ground in what is called bhumisparse mudra which symbolizes his own recognition of enlightened mind in one of the most iconic images in all Buddhism.

The palm always faces inwards. His feet are deliberately drawn level with one another & enlarged, being specific marks of a Buddha.

His right hand supports an alms bowl containing the liquid elixir of eternal life. Somehow the simple image of the bowl reflects his overwhelming humility & kindness.

He wears the traditionally maroon gold monk’s patched robe made of twenty-five pieces of cloth that the first Buddhist monks sewed together.

The Buddha has a green nimbus and blue aureole around his body signifying the highest level of understanding. Siddhartha is surrounded by Pink Lotuses.

This kind of lotus is connected with loving-kindness & flowering of pure consciousness. The closed bud to his right side represents the past or originating mind, the blooming flower represents the present & the buds represent the future Buddha Maitreya and forthcoming realizations.
