August,10 2018 BY Chloe Xin 0 COMMENTS

There is a precious Thangka made of pearls in one of the chapels of Trandruk Monastery, representing Chenrezi at rest. The Thangka is 2 meters long and 1.2 meters wide. The weight of the whole thangka is over 1.3kg.

Most importantly, this thangka is made of 29026 pieces of pearls, 1 diamond, 2 rubies, 1 sapphire, 0.3g of turquoise, 8g of gold, and other gemstones.   

It is a miracle since it has been passed down generations to generations without being damaged or lost during chaos of political struggles and wars.

In Tibet, thangkas are frequently the center of Buddhist religious ceremonies. Pilgrims throw money to the thangka to show their respect.
