Thanka of Lama Norlha (aka Kyechok Tsulzang) printed on high quality canvas, adorned in premium-quality silk brocade made in Varanasi. Blessed by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche.
This thanka depicts the mandala of Lama Norlha (Guru Rinpoche inseparable from Dzambhala, a wealth deity), one of the 12 manifestations of Padmasambhava, from the mandala of the Tukdrub Barche Künsel cycle of Chokling Tersar. This manifestation, known as Kyechok Tsulzang, is associated with enriching activity and prosperity. In the Chokling Tersar texts, he is referred to as the one who bestows “the siddhi of holding the sky treasury.” In Kyechok Tsulzang’s retinue are Dzambhalas of the four families and other wealth deities.
The original of this thanka has been painted by Urgyen Losel – an experienced and talented artist and a monk of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling monastery.
