The Four Harmonious Brothers Reach The Fruit Of The Tree

The Four Harmonious Brothers Reach The Fruit Of The Tree

The Four Harmonious Brothers Reach The Fruit Of The Tree

The four brothers are in harmony as they traverse the Himalayan foothills in this gorgeously coloured thangka. Ample verdure coats the numerous hills dotting the landscape. Deep blue waters, abound with life and motion, punctuate the same. Some of the taller hills are covered with snow, their cloud-kissed peaks painted with a skill endemic to Tibetan and Nepalese thangka painters. In the centre are the four brothers, each arranged on top of the other in terms of seniority (partridge over the rabbit, over the monkey, over the elephant). A recurring motif in Buddhist-inspired visual arts, this arrangement conveys the importance in Buddhist tradition of honouring age above nobility or greatness or learning.

It all started when the brothers fell out with each other, and in a state of mutual discord turned to discussing the age of the banyan tree (which has been painted ahead of the brothers in the direction they are taking). While the elephant remembers it as a bush from his childhood, the monkey remembers it as a mere shrub and the rabbit as a leafless sapling. However, it is the partridge that had carried its very seed in his body and planted it there, so he is the one sits above the rest of his brothers. This is the Tittira Jataka parable that the Buddha had narrated to teach his disciples that age comes above everything else. In fact, it is this arrangement that enables the partridge to reach for the fruit of the banyan tree to share with his brothers.

Ketil, Norway
Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
