Silk applique thangka is a highly renowned form of Tibetan Buddhist art.
Monasteries, practitioners and individuals buy this style of thangka for the beauty, quality and deep meaning of the art form.
Traditionally silk thangkas are held in high esteem due to the time consuming nature of hand stitching and embroidery, they are versatile and not subject to deterioration such as occurs with the painting thangkas.
They travel well and look stunning in any setting.
This is the result of Urgyen Sonam’s skill, patience, concentration and dedication and is an exquisite hand stitched work of sacred art.

About Avalokitesvara (Tibetan: Chenrezi/Chenrezig) Bodhisattva of Glancing Eyes:
Chenrezig is the embodiment of the compassion of all of the Buddhas and is regarded by the Tibetan people as the guardian of the country.

Chenrezig is most often depicted white in color but sometimes red, symbolizing his passionate concern for beings. He is one of the eight Bodhisattvas and one of the two chief Bodhisattvas of Amitaba. He is one of the Three Protectors of Beings, that of the Padma or Lotus family.

Through his sharing of mankind’s misery, he positions himself to help those in distress and is considered a savior. In a sitting position, he is most often seen in two-armed and four-armed embodiments. In his two-armed form, he usually sits in the full lotus posture. The two arms represent his unfailing skillful means and wisdom. His four-armed form, sitting in the full lotus posture represents the four boundless qualities of a bodhisattva: equanimity, love, compassion and joy. Chenrezig’s head is crowned with that of Buddha Amitaba, the Lord of the Lotus Family of whom Avalokitesvara is an emanation. He symbolizes infinite compassion (Karuna) for his refusal of accepting nirvana, which he considers selfish and instead choosing to reincarnate so he can help mankind. The Dalai Lama and the Karmapa are considered the living manifestations of Chenrezig.
