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.

Manjushree Thangka

Manjushree is viewed both as a historical boshisattva, and as an emanation of viarochana Buddha. He manifests as a bodhisattva to provoket  investigation into such topics as Emptiness, free will, and  the nature of the self. He is one of the most popular Bodhisattvas following Avalokitesvra. Within Tibetan Buddhism,Manjushree is a tantric meditational deity or Yidam, and considered a fully enlightened Buddha. He sometimes is depicted in a trinity with Avlokiteshvara and vajrapani.

Manjushree is mentioned in many Mahayana sutras, Particularly the Prajnaparamita sutras.The Lotus sutra assigns him a paradise called Vimala, Wich according to the Avatamsaka sutra is located in the east. Another epithet is Vakishvara (Lord of speech) and it is this aspect of Manjushree that associates him with a great historical teacher known as Manjughosha.

Manjushree is known as the God of Divine wisdom, and is considered the founder of Nepalese civilization and the creator of the Kathmandu Valley. Devotees believe that he confers wisdom, memory and intelligence.
