This is a splendid, rare, red and gold thangka of the Buddha Shakyamuni. Red is the color of powerful rituals and deeds. It is the color of passion, transmuted in the lotus Buddha clan of Amitabha and closely associated with universal compassion. Moreover Shakyamuni is a manushi Buddha in the panel of Amitabha Buddha of the group of five Dhyani Buddha.

The Buddha Shakymuni is shown here seated in vajraparyankasana on a moon disk on a lotus emerged from a lake. His right hand is in earth-witness gesture and the left hand in meditation position. The earth-witness gesture of the Buddha reminds the event of his enlightenment at Bodhgaya. His figure is well drawn. He has an oval face; his half closed eyes, and smiling face convey the expression of calm, serene, love and compassion. His hair, painted in gold, is fashioned in small curls with prominent ushnisha (protuberance). There is a jewel on the top of his head. The characteristic signs of a Buddha – broad shoulders, long earlobes, trivali (three lines on the neck) etc. are precisely shown in the present figure of the Buddha. His robes whose patches are bordered with gold are decorated with geometric designs. There is a mandorla and a halo behind his body and head, respectively. Amitabha, the Buddha of infinite light are seated in the upper center in clouds. The upper right and left corners are filled with the images of auspicious symbols, followed by two semicircles in which two deities are shown in dancing attitude in clouds. The bottom corners are filled with perhaps the figures of Sariputra and Maudgalyayana, the chief disciples of the Buddha Shakyamuni. These two from their prominence in the system seem to have contributed materially to its success, having died before their master, the first of the patriarchs was the senior surviving disciple, Mahakashyapa. The bottom center of the painting is filled with auspicious offerings.

The middle and foreground is filled with mountainous landscape, high peaks, lakes, natural vegetation and clouds etc. The thangka is very much suitable for sadhana and for the ritual to obtain power and compassion.

As ever, brilliant price and service.
Howard, UK.
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 just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

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.
