Fine Art Thangka Print by Flera Birmane.
A stunningly beautiful painting of Achi Chokyi Drolma, the principle Dharma protector of the Drikung Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism.
Chokyi Drolma, literally means “Savioress of the Dharma,” and the familiar title Achi simply translates as “grandmother”. In this thangka we can see Achi as the central figure alongside Tashi Tseringma and the Long- Life sisters. On a top there is a line of eight appropriate lineage holders. From left to right, Vajradhara, the Indian Mahasiddha Tilopa, his direct disciple Naropa, Marpa, Milarepa, Gampopa, Pakmodrupa and Jigten Sumgon. Below this line on the left is an image of Cakrasamvara with his consort Vajravarahi, and on the right is a four-armed form of the deity Mahakala. There appears to also be a second, smaller image of Achi on the left side. Unlike the central figure, this one is standing. The lowest line of figures depicts animals given to Achi and her retinue as offerings.
