White Tara Thangka with Amitābha & Namgyälma
Beautiful Handpainted Thangka of White Tara. The Thangka also depicts Shakyamuni Buddha on top & Buddha Amitayus on the right & Namgyälma on the left.
The Thangka of the White Tara, also called "the Mother of all Buddhas" is the perfect embodiment of graceful power, wisdom, and purity. As with Tara expressions in the other five colors, the vibrations of white color expresses the specific energy of White Tara. Pure, truthful, powerful, transcending all limitations - these are just some of the attributes of color white that describe the energy of White Tara. Sometimes the White Tara is called "the Goddess of Seven Eyes" because, in addition to the third eye, she is also depicted with eyes in her hands and feet. This represents White Tara seeing all human suffering, as well as encourages the devotee to develop vigilance and sensitivity to the energy in and around them.
Amitayus is the Buddha of Infinite Life, and he can be recognized by the vase he holds in his lap, a symbol of longevity as it contains amrita, the nectar of immortality. Amitayus is a form of Amitabha, a buddha who is said to bring his devotees to his Pure Land after death, where they are freed from the cycle of samsara and reach enlightenment.
Namgyalma is the deity who has long been associated with her connection to longevity and the process of spiritual purification. Namgyalma should be considered to be one of the female bodhisattva who is able to help put an end to misery and suffering.The Namgyalma mantra-"Om Bhrum Soha Om Amrita Ayur Da Dai Soha" is said to have infinite benefits for those who recite it, which makes it an incredibly powerful mantra to repeat. Practicing the Namgyalma mantra is said to be responsible for helping to free yourself from diseases, illnesses and injuries that could be threatening your life, and also to help you to lengthen your life span. Another benefit of reciting the Namgyalma mantra is that it is said to increase your wisdom, purify your obscurations, eliminate your sins, and help to provide you with a shield against evil omens.
