White Amitayus Thangka

Thangkas – paintings of deities - are traditionally painted on canvas and used as the main support to meditation practice. Reproduced on long-lasting canvas, these thangkas are of such high quality that at first glance they appear painted. You can choose to have your printed thangkas framed in brocade in the traditional Tibetan style or without brocade, allowing you to choose how it will be displayed.

White Amitayus is the totally unobscured dharmadhatu (basic space of phenomena) of all Buddhas. It is as the natural radiance of this utterly indestructible, ultimate state that Amitayus manifests as the sambhogakaya endowed with the five certainties and with buddhafields and bodily forms the densely arrayed ornaments of which are equal to the expansiveness of space.

Just as the analogy of the king of wishfulfilling jewels which is able to appear in a variety of colors, in the same way Buddha Amitayus in his boundless compassion is able to assume any possible form that is in accordance with the karmic disposition of those to be trained. This is why he appears as the Lord of Longevity in five families endowed with the perfect activity that easily protects you from the immense fears of mortality, that possesses the special mantras that bestow both temporary and ultimate benefit, or which readily helps you to attain your desired aims simply by having faith and devotion.

This thangka depicts White Amitayus and His retinue from the Profound Treasures of Chokgyur Lingpa.
