Two Armed Standing Mahakala - Superfine Brocadeless Thangka

Two Armed Standing Mahakala - Superfine Brocadeless Thangka

Mahakala is a guardian deity and a Dharmapala (wrathful god) in Buddhism traditions. His name in Sanskrit can be translated “great “(maha) and “death” (Kala) or beyond death. In the Tibetan language, it translates to Nagpo Chenpo or Great Black One. Mahakala is depicted in many forms, one of which is the two-armed one. This Mahakala (also called the black-cloaked Mahakala), protects Karma Kagyu. This thangka showcases the two-armed Mahakala is an exceptionally packed representation. The deity’s three eyes represent sight that sees the past, present, and future. All over the thangka are fires of dissolution as he stands on cremation grounds.

Mahakala is the wrathful manifestation of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of compassion, and is one of the most misunderstood deities. He is not inherently evil but just took on a wrathful form to represent the power to conquer emotional negativities and obstacles. Such hindrances are represented by the numerous jackals and corpses in the thangka. On the sides are six retinues of his likeness. He holds a vajra chopper which symbolizes wisdom. The vajra chopper is also usually held by wrathful deities. The kupala or skull cup on his other hand serves as a tool that can crush negativities represented by the blood in the cup such as the five poisons (attachment, ignorance, anger, pride, and jealousy). These five negativities are also symbolized by the skulls on his crown. He also holds a trident close which symbolizes the Three Jewels of Buddhism: Buddha, Dharma (teaching), and Sangha (order). The serpent on his waist signifies victory over hate. Meanwhile, the necklace made of skulls recognizes his power to realize without any obstacles for mankind. Two legs rest on humans to also demonstrate his power for the good of all. The figures at the lower register are meditational deities.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
