This handsome thangka portrays a mandala, surrounded by a ring of fire, here it is rendered florally. In Vajrayana fire symbolizes knowledge and without knowledge(prajna) there is no possibility of arriving at supreme understanding. Here fire also means that believers who enter the mandala are purified, as it were, and at their passage through the purging fire, their ego and all their illusions will burn away. After this comes a circle of eight dharma chakras (wheels) that refer to the historical Buddha setting the wheel of the teaching into motion. Wheel is also the symbol of Vairochana Buddha. In between the wheels are auspicious symbols. This circle is followed by a circle of auspicious symbols. The syllable mantras between the symbols indicate various deities. Then there is a circle of lotus petals Here spiritual realm begins and one enters the mandala. Inside the lotus circle are objects for decorating roofs and gates of the building.

The square with the circle represents the building, in the centre of which lives deity. The building is constructed to face in four directions. According to Tibetan convention, east is in front, and south, west, and north follow in the clockwise direction. There is a door in each direction, generally guarded by gate protectors. Here each gateway has a Dharma chakra. The square inside the doors has auspicious stylized symbols and designs.

The inner square contains nine smaller squares containing auspicious symbols and syllable mantra Ah, encircled with lotus petals, that represent deities. Ah is the vijamantra of Amoghasiddhi Buddha. Amoghasiddhi is the head of the action Buddha clan, and he symbolizes the practical realization of all the wisdom of the other four Tathagatas. Moreover he is believed to be 'unfailingly successful and to have the power of infallible magic.

Outside the circle, upper and lower corners are rendered with syllable mantra Ah encircled with lotus petals. The background of the painting is black which has a special meaning in esoteric practices and rituals. Moreover black background and black thangkas are considered as highly mystical and esoteric, usually reserved for advanced practices. It is used for terrific ritual actions, the radical conquest of evil in its forms – conquests not by annihilating, but by turning even evil into good. Further the present thangka is very suitable for the sadhana to tame the bad elements and motivations and for boon of peace and prosperity.

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!

Carl, UK.
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.
