Shakyamuni Buddha was born in 527 B.C . He was the son of King  Sudhodana and Queen Maya Devi . Shakyamuni Buddha was known before attaining enlightenment as Siddhartha or Gautama .

Buddha Shakyamuni is mostly seen at the centre seated on a thousand petal lotus throne .The lotus plant symbolizes his purity and serene nature .He is portrayed meditating in the earth—touching gesture holding an alms bowl with his left hand on top of his lap. He is yellow in color and wears a robe .

 When Shakyamuni  Buddha  was on the verge of Perfect enlightenment ,he had to face both internal and external Maras (Temptations ).It is believed that Devaputra Mara questioned him on the validity of his attainment of Enlightenment and his perfection .At that time, his only witness was mother earth. Buddha Shakyamuni asked mother earth to bear witness to his attainment of paramita or perfection. To indicate this, he touched the earth with his right hand as witness to his perfection .This form of Buddha depicts this incident.

Amazed by their customer service and collection. Would definitely recommend them to everyone

Really Great Customer Service and very beautiful thangka collection.

This is a magnificent piece of Buddha Shakyamuni thangka. Masterfully executed in rich, vibrant colors with illuminating detail; The silk brocade frame compliments the painting beautifully and forms a focal point in our praying/meditation room I receive the piece earlier than expected in good shape; and prior to purchase, Rajendra was responding quickly and very helpful in providing high resolution picture for my further evaluation. Thank you Rajendra and surely I will be back again.

I was extremely pleased with the quality of the unique thangka I received, as well as the immaculate brocade. Communication with Ritual Thanka has been a pleasure, and shipping was faster than I could have hoped for. Six stars! :)
