A beautiful thangka that has been painted in the Karma Gadri style. Legend tells us that Lord Buddha prophesied the coming of Nagarjuna, who lived some time between 150 and 250 C.E. According to accounts, he was born into a Brahmin family in South India and converted to Buddhism. Nagarjuna was to become one of the great Indian Mahasiddhas and along with his disciple Āryadeva, he is credited with founding the Mādhyamaka school of Mahāyāna Buddhism. His name means "one who has conquered, tamed, and gained mastery over the Nagas.

Suffering, too, is like a dream.
