Antique Buddhist Thangka Painting

DATE
Century: 18th (1701-1800)

This simple Thangka was deaccessioned by a monastery in Mongolia.

Peter Daniel Szanto for translating the inscription on the back, “… it’s a standard pair of verses used in consecration: ‘Patience is the supreme ascetic practice, patience is supreme nirvana, said the Buddha(s). The renunciate who harms another and who injures another is no Sramana (Buddhist ascetic).'”
