Huge Manjushri Thangka at Labrang Monastery, February 2013
« on: February 23, 2013, 09:23:05 AM »
I saw this lovely Manjushri thangka from Labrang Monastery and just wanted to share the photos with everyone this weekend! Maybe one day we will have a humungous Dorje Shugden thangka!

The Buddha tangka display or "the basking of Buddha" is a Tibetan tradition praying for a good year. As one of the six leading monasteries of Tibetan Buddhism, Labrang Monastery built in 1709 is home to more than 1,000 lamas and is another center of the Gelug Sect, also known as the Yellow Sect, of Tibetan Buddhism outside the Tibet Autonomous Region.
