More information about Wheel of Life Tibetan Thangka Painting 17" W x 21" H

The wheel of life illustrates in a popular way the essence of the Buddhist teachings, the four truths: the existence of earthly suffering, its origin and cause, the ending or prevention of misery and the practice path to liberation from suffering. The wheel of life describes the cause of all evil and its effects, mirrored in earthly phenomena just as it is experienced by everyone from the cradle to the grave. Picture by picture it reminds us that everyone is always his or her own judge and responsible for their own fate, because according to Karma, causes and their effects are the fruits of one's own deeds.
 
The Circular composition of the wheel of life guides the viewer from picture to picture along the black path or the white path. It leads him or her through the twelve interwoven causes and their consequences to rebirth in one of the so-called six worlds. Projected on one plane, they fill the whole inner sphere the wheel of life. But the meaning of this painting is to show the way out of all these world of suffering into the sphere beyond.
 
The wheel of life is dedicated to all animated beings who have not yet attained the first step of spiritual liberation (Nirvana). It therefore illustrates in popular way the essence of the Buddhist teachings, the four truths: the existence of earthly suffering, its origin and cause, the cessation or prevention of misery and the practice path to liberation from earthly suffering.
 
The wheel of life describes the cause of all evil and its effects, mirrored in earthly phenomena just it is as experienced by every man from the cradle to the grave. Picture by picture it reminds us that everyone is always his or her own judge and responsible for their own fate, because according to Karma, causes and their effects are the fruits of one's own deed. The so-called fate is demonstrated by the lord of dead, who like a monsterholds the wheel of life in his claws: he is a symbol of the transitory nature of all earthly phenomena.
