The Shakyamuni Buddha Thangka Painting offered by Himalayas Shop is a masterpiece created using traditional methods. The artwork is hand-painted on cotton canvas using natural stone colors, gold, and other natural pigments. The artist has also depicted 5 Dhyani Buddha in this art which represents the Mandala in Paradigm for tantric symbology.
Buddha Shakyamuni, originally known as Siddhartha Gautama, was born as the only son of a king. He chose to renounce his luxurious lifestyle and adopt the life of a religious wanderer at the age of 29. At the age of 35, he gained profound insight into the true nature of reality, which led to his attainment of complete enlightenment or "Dharma." The depicted image of Buddha Shakyamuni shows him on the Bhumisparsa Mudra, where he touches the earth during his enlightenment, symbolizing his profound realization. The 5 Dhyani Buddha at the top represents a different aspect of enlightened consciousness and is associated with a particular color, direction, and element.
