The narrative says that Siddharta Gautama, the first Buddha, said that the life he was lived at the time he became Enlightened was only one of his many lifetimes. His was a life of many previous existences. Such experiences were immortalized in the Jataka tales, detailing the births and rebirth of the Buddha in human and animal form. Mahayana Buddhism even posits that the Shakyamuni’s life period covers up to 5,000 years, after which, Maitreya’s period will flourish. As time progresses, Buddhism grew many schools. Many various Buddhas have since been recognized. Many portrayals of Buddhas can be seen in temples or art pieces. The theme in this thangka showcases the thousand-Buddha imagery, which is well known all over the Buddhist tradition. It signifies not only strength in numbers and belief but also represents the endless movement of a prayer wheel.

At the center of this piece is the Shakyamuni Buddha who sits on a Six-Ornament Throne (for enlightenment). His right hand is his iconic earth-touching mudra which signaling the moment he became enlightened. The thangka uses a red and gold palette, which can universally represent wealth (red) and enlightenment (gold). Two other figures appear below him, his trusted student Shariputra and Maudgalyayana. In between the two followers are the intertwined forms of the Asthamangala. These sacred suits and their symbolisms are the conch (sound of dharma), endless knot (unity of all things), pair of fish (sacred rivers), lotus (purity), a parasol (protection), vase (health), dharmachakra (wheel of law), victory banner (victory over four hindrances to enlightenment).
