Testimonials
I have been welcomed with so much kindness and compassion into the gallery and it has made my experience in Kathmandu one I will remember forever. The in depth explanations of the Nepalese Thanka and its meaning to the people has inspired me in learning, and hopefully-to practice one day. I have experienced many conversations about Buddhist Philosophy and what it means to view an authentic Thanka, and to feel its true power and energy. It has been a real pleasure meeting everyone, learning and being treated like family. I look forward to keeping in contact with the academy, and hopefully to one day organize a partnership with Australia, and spread the light and beauty of this ancient art around the western world. Namaste.

Amitabha Buddha is portrayed as sakyamuni Buddha. But usually, he is often depicted seated in meditation mudra while earth touching mudra is reserved for a seated sakyamuni Buddha alone. When standing, Amitabha is often downward with thumb and for a seated sakyaminu Buddha alone.
When standing, Amitabha is often shown with his left arm bare and extended downward with thumb and forefinger touching ,with his right hand facing, outward also with thumb and forefinger touching. The meaning of this mudra is that wisdom (symbolize by the raised hand) is accessible to even the lowest beings, while the outstretched hand shows that his compassion is directed at the lowest beings, who cannot save themselves.
 Amitabha Buddha is often portrayed with two assistants: Avlokitesvara on right and Macasthamprapta in his left.
In Tibetan Buddhim, Amitabha is red in color (red being the color of live, compassion, and emotional energy). His direction is west and so he is envisioned as the (red) setting sun. He is seen as the supreme power and energy of nature, cast in an earthly plain, accessible to all sentient beings. He is being known to protect beings from the negative emotions of attachment. His unique emblem is the lotus. He is thus associated with the attributes of the lotus: gentleness, openness, and purity.
