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.

Buddha Life Thangka

Buddha Life Thangka

Buddha Life Thangka illustrates the life story of Buddha. All the historic part of Buddha's life is depicted visually in the Buddha Life Thangka. The Day he was born from his mothers right arm pit as she rested her arm on the branch of a big tree in the garden of Lumbini. The childhood locked inside the palace compounds, freeing him from the evil and preventing him from seeing and experiencing any kind of pain or suffering of outside world. The Day he ventured beyond the castle walls and came across sorrow, pain, death and those suffering – he saw beggar, a cripple, a corpse and a holy man – which affected the prince deeply, awakening a deep desire to find the corpse of suffering and thus alleviate it.

The Night he escaped the walls of palace, when all were asleep and began the life of wandering ascetic. His years of fasting, meditation and time spent in painful search to find a way to end suffering. The full moon night when he had a direct realization of Nirvana (eternal peace), which transformed prince into Buddha. The Time he spent guiding people towards nirvana, love and friendship. The Day he left this world at the age of eighty, having exhausted his human body for the sake of all sentiment beings. All are shown in the Buddha Life Thangka Painting.
