These Thangkas illustrate the Buddha’s path to spiritual enlightenment. Buddhist philosophy divides the Buddha’s life into twelve major events. These acts of the Buddha’s life are recounted in the special genre of painting known as the Twelve Great Acts of the Buddha’s Life. These handicrafts tell the story of the Buddha’s enlightenment. The Buddha’s mother dreams of a white elephant when she becomes pregnant, and then gives birth to the Buddha in the garden of Lumbini, where he takes seven steps forward immediately after his birth. The thangka also symbolises the journey of becoming a great yogi: leaving his family palace, experiencing the pain and suffering of those outside the palace, his quest to find a solution to people’s misery. The Buddha began fasting and meditated for years in search of a solution to people’s suffering. However, in all his actions, he still could not reach the level of satisfaction he felt when a little girl gave him rice, which he ate during his meditation under the Bodhi tree. The Thangka also represents the night of the full moon, after attaining Nirvana (eternal peace), when Siddhartha changed from Prince Gautam to Buddha.
