More about White Tara Thangka Art
Thangka painting depicts Buddhist deity White Tara, who is the "mother of liberation" and represents the virtues of success in achievements. Tibetans pray to White Tara especially for health, healing and longevity. She offers healing to one's wounds, whether it's one's mind, body or spirit.
Tibetans usually think of Tara as having 21 manifestations, as she does in the common Tibetan Buddhist prayer — In Praise of the 21 Taras. In each form she takes a different colour — such as Blue and Black — and offers a different energy or virtue to help one on one's spiritual path. Of these 21 Taras, the two most venerated are White Tara and Green Tara.
In comparison to Green Tara, who is shown seated with one leg on the ground, ready to come to one's defense, White Tara is seated in the more meditative diamond lotus position, with both legs folded under her. She is represented with seven eyes - with an eye in her forehead, and one on each hand & foot - symbolizing her compassionate vigilance to see human afflictions. Her left hand is in the protective mudra and her right hand is in the wish-granting mudra. In her left hand she holds a stem of the Utpala lotus, symbol of purity.
More about Lama painted Art
Lama is a title officially extended only to the few dozen Tibetan Buddhist monks who have achieved the highest level of spiritual development. Lamas are considered to be the highest quality Thangka painters and create art exclusively with 24 Carat Gold and Sterling Silver.
Before being "released to the world" these paintings are prayed upon by a Lama and the whole temple, bestowing them with blessings and positive energy. Some people believe that a painting made by a Lama can bring good fortune because Lama puts a part of his energy in the painting.
