More about Padmasambhava Thangka Art
Padmasambhava, also known as Guru Rinpoche, translates as 'precious master' from Tibetan language. He was an Indian tantric master who played a major role in bringing Vajrayana Buddhism to Tibet. He is widely venerated as a "second Buddha" by adherents of Tibetan Buddhism in Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and the Himalayan states of India.
When Guru Rinpoche appeared as the reincarnation of Buddha Shakyamuni, the 'first Buddha', he revealed the Vajrayana teachings in their entirety. For the most part, Buddha Shakyamuni presented “Hinayana” and Sutra Mahayana teachings, while Guru Padmasambhava taught the Vajrayana, also known as Tantra. Both revealed the complete and perfect path to awakening. However, Tantric teachings offer a more subtle understanding of human experience and additional methods to realize enlightenment.
In this painting Padmasambhava is depicted seating in a royal posture holding a vajra, weapon of Gods, in his right hand. His left hand holds a vase filled with the nectar of longevity and wisdom.
