Thangkas are Himalayan paintings that depict various Buddhist deities as described in the canonical texts. This beautiful Thangka painting features Guru Rinpoche, who is believed to have introduced Buddhism to the Land of Snow (Tibet). It has been painted in Nepal by an experienced artist and mounted on brocade. The colours are vibrant with great attention to detail shown in the work. 

Guru Rinpoche, also known as Padmasambhava, is a legendary figure revered in Tibetan Buddhism. He is considered the "Precious Teacher" who brought Vajrayana, a powerful form of Buddhist practice, to Tibet in the 8th century.

Shrouded in myth and legend, Guru Rinpoche is believed to have been born miraculously from a lotus flower. His arrival in Tibet is credited with subduing local spirits and establishing Buddhism as a dominant force. He is seen as a bridge between historical and mythical realms, and his teachings are considered essential for spiritual liberation.

A thangka like this is considered a most auspicious gift to give to someone to mark a significant milestone (wedding, new venture, new home, etc).
