Mudras of Sakyamuni @ Tashilhunpo Monastery



Over 1000 repeated images of Sakyamuni, with their hands gesturing the five symbolic poses (mudras), on the walls of the great courtyard of Tashilhunpo Monastery.


Tashilhunpo Monastery (Tibetan: བཀྲ་ཤིས་ལྷུན་པོ་), founded in 1447 by Gendun Drup, the First Dalai Lama, is a historic and culturally important monastery next to Shigatse, the second-largest city in Tibet Autonomous Region of China. The monastery is the traditional seat of successive Panchen Lamas, the second highest ranking tulku lineage in the Gelukpa tradition.
