Panchabuddha Against A Complex Background Dominated By Red And Gold

In the language of myth, and not history, the Enlightened Shakyamuni is best understood as the Panchabuddha (in Sanskrit, 'panch' stands for the numeral 5). The one Buddha as we know Him is resolved into five, like a ray of light refracting into multiple colours through a prism, each embodying an aspect of Enlightenment. These figures have evolved as devotees spent years dwelling on the qualities of Gautama Buddha, the ones flanking the central figure having arrived first in the mandala in question. The pristine figure in the centre is Vairochana. To His right are Ratnasambhava and Akshobya, while to His left are Amitabha and Amoghasiddhi, respectively.

Each of the tathagatas come with their own mandalas and iconographies. Their mudras are unique, the motifs on their respective lotus thrones differentiated and symbolic. Zooming in on each of the figures would enable the viewer to appreciate the differentiations, the only one of which that has been conspicuously highlighted and that is the colour of the skin. The blue, gold, white, red, and green are each associated with their own elements, directions, and maladaptations of the soul. The dominant red-and-gold colour scheme of this thangka makes this a highly desirable panchatathagata composition to possess.

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
