Art of Worship – Embroidered Tibetan Thangka

 

The Buddhist philosophy of keeping the mind engaged in various forms of prayers as the route to earning Karma has resulted in many exquisite artworks. Created with the powerful combination of a Buddhist monk’s patience and devotion, his best energies of are drawn to the fore and poured into the art.

This is one such artwork in silk.

[Note – Audio present]

Note the expression on the face of the Buddha and as always, the details of the textiles. Note also the fading of  dyes on the silk threads in sections.

Given that a majority of the Thangkas saw daylight only once every few years, and considering the care offered to them by the monastic communities, they remain well preserved in the climatic conditions that are perfectly suited for fragile silk textiles.

And while I personally cannot create anything as spectacular, I’m hoping that my devotion to the subject of traditional art,  will result in some useful output!
