What is the Meaning of Mandala Thangka

Mandala (literally a "circle") is a symbol in Buddhism and Hinduism, representing the Universe. Structurally, Kalachakra mandala is represented by the Square (Stupa), which is circled by circles of fire, earth, wind, water, wisdom and space, symbolising cosmic and psychic order. Mandalas hold spiritual significance and make artistic appearances in cultures & philosophies across the globe. The famed Swiss psychiatrist, Dr. Carl Jung, used mandala in his work with clients. He felt when concentrated upon, mandala can bring up deeper human consciousness, which helped the client to receive revelation about the true potential and awareness of the self.


Mandalas use sacred geometry to create perfect geometrical shapes and aesthetic looks, which can help create a sacred space at home. There are a lot of philosophies and studies about the flow and movement of energy within a space and how to guide it to offer the best benefits to the person. Among them, there is Feng Shui which is an ancient Chinese science of harmony and prosperous living.  Mandala's harmonious structure is an iconic choice for interior design.

All of our paintings come from the original birthplace of Thangkas, which is Tibet, Nepal, North India and Bhutan. Depending on the size and quality of details it can take an artist up to three years to complete a single piece, using 24 Carat Gold, Sterling Silver and Himalayan precious & semi-precious minerals.
