A thangka (tangka or tanka) is a Tibetan Buddhist painting originally made by lamas or Buddhist priests. It can depict a deity or a mandala, is an integral part of Buddhist practice, and serves as an important teaching tool depicting the life of the Buddha.

The mandala, which means 'circle' in Sanskrit, is a geometric shape with symbolic meaning. It is used for meditation, prayer, healing and art therapy by adults and children alike. Mandalas have been clinically studied to strengthen the immune system, reduce stress and pain, lower blood pressure, promote sleep and relieve depression.

The yantra images depict symmetrical geometric shapes, which radiate cosmic positive energies, curb negative energies and help individuals ascend spiritually.

Discovering new cultures, exploring a new place, meeting local people and artists, and getting the chance to see our world through their eyes is always one of the most exciting parts of our travels. We return home from every trip with spiritual and material memories, finding many things in the local markets and small shops that we can't find at home. With the spread of globalisation, mass-produced items are increasingly replacing the wonderful things made by local craftsmen and artists. Our aim is to bring a tiny corner of the world to our own country, supporting the families, artists and craftspeople who have brought so many beautiful memories into our lives through their creations. Helping them to continue their craft and to keep alive the traditions of their country and their people so that they can continue to delight travellers and pilgrims for many years to come.

Genuine hand painted thangka on cotton canvas using stone colour.

Place of origin: Nepal

These Thangkas are the illustration of Buddha’s path towards spiritual enlightenment. Buddhist philosophy divides the eventful lifetime of Buddha into twelve events, narrated in a special genre of paintings known as the Twelve Great Deeds of the Buddha’s Life. These handworks not solely delineate Buddha’s standard progression to Buddhism. Buddha’s mother dreams of a white elephant as she falls pregnant then gives birth to Buddha in the garden of Lumbini. After his birth, he instantly walks 7 steps forward. The thangka also represent his journey to become a great yogi: from deserting his family palace, internalizing the pain and suffering of the individuals beyond his palace life. His quest to seek out the solution for the misery of people. He started fasting, meditating over years to find solution for the suffering of people. However through all his actions he could still not reach level of gratification he felt when a little girl gave him rice which he ate during his meditation under Bodhi tree. The Thangka also represents the full moon night once he reached Nirvana (eternal peace), when he transformed from Prince Siddhartha Gautam into Buddha.
