Medicine Buddha or Sangye Menla (Tibetan) is the Buddha of healing and medicine.
He is described as a doctor who cures suffering using the medicine of his teachings.
This exquisite and one-of-a-kind Tibetan thangka is hand painted by master artists in the Kathmandu Valley. Thangka painting schools in Nepal help to keep Tibetan traditions alive. A true masterpiece, this painting is the perfect addition to your home, meditation area, or altar space.
Healing practices, physical and spiritual, played an important role in the transmission of Buddhism throughout Asia. In this beautiful thangka, Bhaishajyaguru (Sanskrit) or Sangye Menla (Tibetan), wears a red robe and is attended by a large assembly of related deities, including two seated bodhisattvas who hold symbols for the sun and the moon. The twelve warriors, six at each side, symbolize the Buddha’s vows to help others
Cotton canvas art allows to be mounted in western-style frame or set in coloured brocade in traditional style (contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information on brocade setting)
Kindly note: Traditional thangka artists do not sign their name on their completed work.
By not doing so, it is a symbol of humility and reluctance to take any merit for the work that they created. Preferably, the artwork is considered as a tribute to the dharma and the deity they create.
Please be aware of the misconception that thangka art is worth more when signed by the artist
