The enthroned golden figure is that of Buddha Shakyamuni in the earth-touching mudra. He is accompanied by his two principal disciples Shariputra and Maudgalyayana. Thirty-four smaller Buddhas with various complexions and gestures, seated in the same posture as Shakyamuni, surround the central figure in a regimented manner. The combined number of these thirty-five represent the Buddhas of Confession of sins invoked collectively by monks on special occasions.

Buddhism recognizes 35 serious violations and sins against the teachings. The sinner who repents will find for each misstep a Buddha who will point the way to a better attitude toward` life. All 35 have a name. They only appear in the specific context of the Confessional Buddhas. Numerologists have given the number 35 cosmic dimension by breaking it down into the four cardinal directions and the four intermediary directions plus zenith and nadir, and the axis between, as well as the 24 vertical intermediary divisions. Thus the number 35 expresses the omnipresence of the Buddha. In the present thangka the painter largely followed the layout but did not stick to the proper number.

The group of 35 confessional Buddhas have very important place in Tibetan Buddhism. The centre of this group is always represented by the Buddha Shakyamuni as he himself is 35th among the Confessional Buddhas. The Shiksha- samuchchaya and the works of Tsong Khapa mention in detail about the meaning, significance and iconography of the Confessional Buddhas. These Buddhas are invoked in the Click Here to View the Thangka Painting along with its Brocade

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
