Thangkas are traditional Tibetan Buddhist paintings or tapestries depicting deities, enlightened beings, mandalas, or teachings. Highly revered, these are used in religious ceremonies and meditation, and painted on canvas or silk with brushwork and vivid pigments. Thangka painters train for years to accurately use specific iconography and symbolic elements.
The "Cundi Thangka" is a painting depicting the Mahayana Buddhist deity Cundi (also known as Cundi Bodhisattva or Cundi Dharani). This particular figure is renowned within Chinese and East Asian Buddhist traditions.

Cundi is regarded as an enlightened Bodhisattva who embodies wisdom and compassion. Her multiple arms and heads emphasize her capacity to appear in multiple forms to help living beings. Pictures of Cundi often depict her carrying various items including a lotus, a sword, a gem, and a vajra that symbolize her merciful actions. The Cundi Thangka typically portrays Cundi seated on a lotus throne, surrounded by a radiant halo and accompanied by other enlightened beings or bodhisattvas.
Having a Cundi Thangka present at home space is seen as a fortunate act and can serve as a dedicated area of concentration for spiritual practice. It is believed that connecting with Cundi's image can support the development of knowledge, tenderness, and spiritual enlightenment.
