A thangka painting is an integral part of Tibetan tradition, serving as a visual aid for meditation practice. This beautiful Manjushri Thangka Painting is painted using traditional style. At Himalayas Shop all our Thangka are hand painted on cotton canvas using natural stone colour, Gold and other natural pigments. Thangka Painting may take from 1 month to years to complete a single painting depending upon its quality.
Manjushri is commonly depicted as a male Bodhisattva. This particular Thangka showcases the divine figure of Manjushri, depicted with profound symbolism. In his right hand, Manjushri holds a flaming sword, representing his innate ability to cut through delusion and ignorance, guiding practitioners towards clarity and insight. His left hand delicately holds the stem of a lotus flower, a symbol of purity and spiritual growth. The sacred scripture supported by the lotus (padma) held in his left hand is a Prajnaparamita sutra (the Perfection of Wisdom), representing Manjushri of ultimate realization from the blossoming of knowledge and wisdom.
