More about Bhairava Mandala Thangka Art
Bhairava (Maha Kala Bhairava) (Sanskrit: भैरव, lit. frightful) is a Shaivite deity worshiped by Hindus. In Shaivism, he is a fierce manifestation of Shiva associated with annihilation. In Trika system Bhairava represents Supreme Reality, synonymous to Para Brahman.
Om Mani Padme Hum is in the center of the mandala. The mantra and the elements surrounding the center of the mandala represent the movements of the planets and the whole cosmos around Mount Meru, the holy mountain considered the center of the axis of both physical and spiritual universe.
This Mandala features in the corners the auspicious Buddhist symbols representing the different metaphysical state of the mind according to traditional Tibetan Buddhism.
Om Mani Padme Hum is a mantra particularly associated with the four-armed form of Avalokiteshvara / Chenrezig. Mani means “the jewel” and Padma means “the lotus”.
Mani, meaning jewel, symbolizes the factors of method: (the) altruistic intention to become enlightened, compassion, and love.
The two syllables, Padme, meaning lotus, symbolize wisdom. Purity must be achieved by an indivisible unity of method and wisdom, symbolized by the final syllable hum, which indicates indivisibility.
Thus the six syllables, om mani Padme hum, mean that in dependence on the practice of a path which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech, and mind into the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha. – HH 14th Dalai Lama
