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 a medicine buddha thangka painting.
This medicine buddha thangka travels well and look stunning in any setting.
This is the result of my skill, patience, concentration and dedication and is an exquisite hand stitched work of sacred art.
About Medicine Buddha:
Ancient teachings tell us that merely seeing the Medicine Buddha, or even seeing an image of the Medicine Buddha, or hearing the name of the Medicine Buddha, can confer inconceivable benefits.
In Tibetan images of the Medicine Buddha the left hand typically holds a blooming myrobalan plant. Tibetan medicine recognizes three basic types of illness, the root causes of which are the conflicting emotions — passion, aggression, and ignorance. Myrobalan is the only herb in the Tibetan pharmacopoeia that can aid in healing each of these three types of diseases. This is like the action of the Buddha of Healing, who has the power to see the true cause of any affliction, whether spiritual, physical or psychological, and who does whatever is necessary to alleviate it
