Buddha Life illustrates the life story of Buddha. All the historic part of Buddha’s life is depicted visually in the Buddha Life Story. The Day he was born from his mothers right arm pit as she rested her arm on the branch of a big tree in the garden of Lumbini, Nepal. The childhood locked inside the palace compounds, freeing him from the evil and preventing him from seeing and experiencing any kind of pain or suffering of outside world. The day he ventured beyond the castle walls and came across sorrow, pain, death and those suffering – he saw beggar, a cripple, a corpse and a holy man – which affected the prince deeply, awakening a deep desire to find the corpse of suffering and thus alleviate it. The night when he escaped the walls of palace, when all were asleep and began the life of wandering ascetic. His years of fasting, meditation and time spent in painful search to find a way to end suffering. The full moon night when he had a direct realization of Nirvana (eternal peace), which transformed prince into Buddha. The times he spent guiding people towards nirvana, love and friendship. The Day he left this world at the age of eighty, having exhausted his human body for the sake of all sentiment beings. All are described in the Buddha Life Story. In the central part of this modern painting Buddha Sakyamuni is seen meditations in the earth touching gesture on a lotus throne with a modern silk cloth with a visvavairan ark on it. He is flanked by two of his chief disciples namely Sariputra and Maudgalyayana. His face seems very serene and his body is emitting auras surrounding his body. As pictured above, Twelve Great events of the Buddhas Life are. His Promise to Take Birth in the Human Realm and Guide Sentient Beings to Enlightenment. The Birth of Buddha. Buddhas Early Years and His Worldly Life. The Skillful Conduct of Worldly Affairs. The Renunciation of Worldly Life. The Six Years of Austerities. The Defeat of Mara. The Proclamation of the Teachings. The Descent from the Trayatrimsa Heaven. The Passage into Parinirvana. A thangka, also known as tangka, thanka or tanka is a painting on cotton, or silk appliqué, usually depicting a Buddhist deity, scene, or mandala of some sort. The thangka is not a flat creation like an oil painting or acrylic painting but consists of a picture panel which is painted or embroidered over which a textile is mounted and then over which is laid a cover, usually silk. Generally, thangkas last a very long time and retain much of their luster, but because of their delicate nature, they have to be kept in dry places where moisture won’t affect the quality of the silk. It is sometimes called a scroll-painting. These thangka served as important teaching tools depicting the life of the Buddha, various influential lamas and other deities and bodhisattvas. One subject is The Wheel of Life, which is a visual representation of the Abhidharma teachings (Art of Enlightenment). Thangka, when created properly, perform several different functions. Images of deities can be used as teaching tools when depicting the life (or lives) of the Buddha, describing historical events concerning important Lamas, or retelling myths associated with other deities. Devotional images act as the centerpiece during a ritual or ceremony and are often used as mediums through which one can offer prayers or make requests. Overall, and perhaps most importantly, religious art is used as a meditation tool to help bring one further down the path to enlightenment. The Buddhist Vajrayana practitioner uses a thangka image of their yidam, or meditation deity, as a guide, by visualizing themselves as being that deity, thereby internalizing the Buddha qualities.
