Painting of a Buddha is called in Sanskrit a "Buddharupa," meaning "the form of an Enlightened One." So Buddha thangka represent the "enlightened one". the idol of the Buddhist religons. Buddha thangkas are a symbol of Buddhism's founder. Siddhartha Gauthama. Buddhists have used such images for thousands of years to show how the Truth can be found within oneself through the practice of meditation and spiritual training. Thus, a thangka of Shakyamuni does more than commemorate an historical figure; it is a reminder of the spiritual potential inherent within all of us to awaken to the Truth as He, a fellow human being, did.
Buddhists usually place figures of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas on their altars. Bowing and offering incense at these altars expresses both the recognition of the sublime spiritual qualities shown by these thangkas and the aspiration to manifest these same qualities within ourselves.
