Thangka Painting: A Roadmap to Enlightenment
“Devotion versus emotion?” An outstanding difference between Traditional Tibetan art and other contemporary art forms is the motivation. Thangka are painted in strict adherence to guidelines, passed down from teacher to student. Devoid of ego, many thangka artists will not sign their pieces, firmly believing their ego should not be present on an image of a Buddha.
Decisions on the environment, or background, are often left to the artist, what they deem most beautiful, or honorific. However, proportions, mudras, implements, positioning, and colouring of the Buddhas and deities are not left open to interpretation. luckythanka thangka # art painting thanka # awakening buddha awareness yoga meditation mindfulness himalaya walldecor wallart wallhangingdecor
