Sacred Buddhist Painting
Sacred Buddhist Painting
Description
From the Jacket

Sacred Buddhist Painting is a lucid account of thangka painting, a form of scroll painting integral to Tibetan Buddhist worship. Painting and sculpture were crucial to the religious life of Tibet. Ordinary Tibetans were often advised by their religious preceptors to commission a painting to 'remove' physical or mental obstacles, or to create the prerequisites for a long and healthy life (zhabs brtan).

Like any other virtuous deed, the commissioning of religious art was believed to earn merit (bsod nams), the only thing in the Buddhist view that could give rise to future benefits and happiness. From this has emerged an art unique in its imagery, choice of colours and immediacy of content.

This book introduces the reader to the gem-like iridescence of colours representing the archetypal Buddhist images of good and evil. It has thangkas from renowned collections the world over. Of special interest are the thangkas from the collection of H. H. the Dalai Lama's private chapel (Namgyal Monastery), his apartment above Norbulingka Temple, and his collection donated to the Library of Works and Archives, in Dharamsala, India.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.
Heramba, USA
Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
