Dieses neueste Thangka mit dem Mandala der weißen Tara macht mich geradezu glücklich, wenn ich es betrachte. Auch mein Mann ist begeistert von der Reichhaltigkeit, der Vielfalt und Schönheit dieses meisterhaft gemalten Thangkas! Ich finde, es ist unser schönstes Thangka, in jeder Weise. Es ist wunderbar, daß wir es bekommen konnten.
Der Brokat mit dem dunklen Rot seiner auf Schwarzgrund eingewebten Verzierungen wirkt farblich ergänzend zu dem goldenen Bild, und geradezu eine Überraschung waren die feinen Brokat-Randstreifen! Sie sind bei der Wiedergabe des Brokatrahmens Nr.34 nicht so dargestellt, waren allerdings schon auf dem Foto mit dem blauen Brokat zu sehen, das Sie uns mailten. Das Thanka, wie wir es jetzt bekommen haben, ist vollkommen, so, wie es jetzt ist. Haben wir ein Glück! Seien Sie noch einmal ganz herzlich bedankt!
Mit allen guten Wünschen und vielen Grüßen,
Gesa Rudolph-Stiefel

I have the thangka now! It's absolutely spectacular and a great tribute to Maitreya and the three jewels.

Many thanks to you for all the great work you and the artists have done. This is truly divine art. I will totally recommend your site to anyone looking for thankgas/Tibetan Buddhist materials and will for sure get in touch with you again should I want another thangka.

Tashi delek and many thanks again!

  I had a great afternoon at your workshop and got great images of artists painting in various stages. It was perfect for what I need. Everyone at the workshop and gallery were very helpful. I will note the group in the chapter credits. Was able to buy a small thangka Wish I could afford some of the beautiful large ones. The quality is excellent. They are like night and day compared to the quality in the shops on Thamel.

Thank you

Ich habe über Internet-Recherche Kontakt zum Dharmapala Thangka Centre aufgenommen und mich für ein bereits existierendes Mandala entschieden.
Die telefonische Beratung, die Abwicklung und die schnelle Lieferung waren jeweils hervorragend. Mein "blindes Vertrauen" wurde nicht enttäuscht. Im Gegenteil, ich wurde erstklassig betreut und habe eine sehr detailliert und hochwertig gearbeitete wunderschöne Ware bekommen. Vielen Dank dafür. Jederzeit wieder ! Gruß aus Bayern.

My thangka is a masterpiece! The photos don't do it justice at all - at all. The people and the animals and the background are beautiful, and everything is painted with great attention to detail. I like the addition of so much gold - something I wasn't expecting. Even my husband, who can be a tough critic, is impressed! I shall be spending hours and days studying my thangka and figuring out all the imagery. It's wonderful and I love it. I wish I could give you a big hug! Thanks so much for everything you did to enable me to purchase this thangka, and please, please convey to the artists how much their work is appreciated. Now I can't wait to show it to my Indian friend who's also a thangka lover, and to my children when they visit for Christmas.,

I was absolutely thrilled with my thangka. I've already taken it to the framers. When it's completed, in about 8 weeks I'll send you a photo so you can see how it turned out! Thanks again to everyone involved in the creation of this beautiful piece of art! Warmest regards,

  From the day I started looking at Dharmapala thangkas and asking various questions till the moment when I extracted the completed thangka from a DHL tube 2 days after it was sent from Kathmandu everything was going well and smoothly. Eventhough the subject of the thangka was not really common and some verbal comments were necessary, it was drawn exactly the way I wanted. The thangka is simply beautiful, thus I sincerely thank all involved painters at Dharmapala center for their skill and effort. And, of course, I am very grateful to Holm for his patience with me throughout the whole process.

It was a pleasure to find this site and it is a pleasure to look at the result of finding it.
Thank you for all your work,

The thangka arrived safely and my teacher blessed it.

Thank you for all you did to make this possible.
Everything-the painting, the brocade, the inscription, the pictures taken and sent, the experience of working with you, your thoughtfulness and that of all the artisans and lamas involved - everything was wonderful!

Thank You

Als Sammler von Schwarzgrund-Thangkas habe ich vom Dharmapala-Center eine einzigartige Mal-Arbeit der Schutzgottheit Beg-Tse erhalten, die auf meinen Wunsch nach der Vorlage eines Originals aus dem 19. Jahrhundert gemalt wurde. Ich kann ohne Übertreibung behaupten, dass dieses Thangka in seiner Qualität, sowie seinen Details und Farben mindestens so schön ist wie das Original und die Maler in Kathmandu für mich begnadete Künstler sind.
Der sehr freundliche und fachkundig
e Rat von Herrn Triesch hat mir bei einigen Auswahlkriterien sehr geholfen und zahlreiche nette und interessante Telefongespräche mit ihm, die Wartezeit von 5 Monaten verkürzt.

Wer ein wirklich erstklassiges und hochwertiges Thangka zu einem fairen Preis bestellen möchte, ist hier genau richtig und sollte sich besser erst gar nicht die Mühe machen, woanders danach zu suchen. Dass jeder Kauf noch eine Spende beinhaltet ist eine wunderschöne Idee und unterstreicht meine absolut positive Meinung hier noch einmal

After buying several Thangka’s at the Dharmapala Thangka Centre at Kathmandu some years ago, I ordered 2 Thangka’s via your site. Now I received the painting of Avalokiteshvara, which is a wonderful and impressive painting. I’m very happy with this excellent one and I’m grateful Holm for all your efforts to keep me updated during the painting process. For you and the people from the Dharmapala Thangka Centre, who worked on this, thanks a lot. Namasté and Tashi Delek!

I just want to say that I was most pleased with your personal service and attention to my first thangka order from Dharmapala Thangka Centre. I received the thangka the other week and am very pleased and satisfied with the order. The quality of your service and the excellence of the thangka art I received greatly surpassed all of my expectations. I appreciate the work you and the Dharmapala Thangka Centre provide in supporting and furthering this tradition of Tibetan sacred art. This artwork will hold a special place in my home and heart for many years to come. Thank you.

Just a small note to express my gratitude and appreciation for the very helpful and completely professional way in which you handled my order for a White Tara thangka. I was assisted in every aspect of the purchase by your unfailing taste and your obvious commitment to the art form.

The thangka, when it arrived, was everything that I hoped for and more, not only as an aid to spiritual practice, but also as a thing of beauty in itself.

Thank you once again

The thangka is very well done. from the colour combination to the fine details of the drawing had been wonderfully and brilliantly drawn. As mention the thangka is best appreciated close-up and photography are unable to bring out the beauty of the thangka.
The brocade is also beautiful. the sewing and workmanship of the thangka to the brocade is fine and exceptional.

I received the Thangka from the Dharmapala Center this morning and it is beautiful! The quality of the workmanship has surpassed all my expectations. I am sure the vibrations from the artists/monks will resonate and enhance my meditations. Please send them my deepest gratitude.

Thanks for coordinating the purchase and God bless! -Steve

My deepest thanks to all involved with the Dharmapala Center [Artists, Administrators, etc]. Your professionalism, courtesy, care and attention to detail made my order and purchase a wonderful and gratifying experience. My thangkas are exquisite, the service and responsiveness of your organization was flawless, and the delivery process was a dream. I have the highest regard for your artisans and representatives and the deepest respect for the all-around excellent work you are doing. I have researched thangka painting extensively and shopped exhaustively [I do not spend thousands of dollars without doing my homework] and I am certain that Dharmapala represents the best available balance of price and quality, unless you find yourself actually in Nepal [and maybe even then]. I intend to do business with you in the future, and in the meantime to enjoy my beautiful paintings and their beneficial effect on my practice.

Many thanks for sending the thangka and I am very pleased to tell you that it arrived safely in perfect time for Christmas on Christmas Eve. As it was very busy here with my family and babies staying, I opened it on Christmas
Day and it was the best present I received! As my visitors have gone out for a while, I have time to email you at last.

Please pass on to Subash my compliments and best wishes. I shall be delighted to hear how he is progressing with his training and I shall be very interested in anything else that he paints. I hope the orphanage will continue to flourish and keep up the excellent work that it does in Kathmandu.

Every good wish for the New Year and for your help in arranging for me to purchase the White Tara thangka. I shall treasure it and find a suitable home for it here, so it will be in good hands. I have printed off the description of how to hang the thangka from your website and later I will try to hang it correctly.

I would like to thank you very much for advising me with my purchase of a Thangka from the Dharmapala Centre. It was a little difficult to purchase a thangka from the internet for the first time – will I have it smoked, if so, how much, what colour brocade will look the best, and you were there advising me with every question that I posed along the way. I would also like to thank you for your quick and professional response.

I was very excited to hear that the thangka was on the way and Holm, three days later when we opened the carefully packed parcel, my husband had tears in his eyes, he so loves the thangka that I had purchased as a surprise for his birthday. In fact everyone who has seen this exquisite thangka has commented on its detail, beauty and power.

Not only do we have this extraordinary thangka, we have also had the pleasure of making new friends at the Dharmapala Centre.

We hope to place an order for another thangka very soon,

Thanks again Holm

We are very pleased with the service we received in our first and not last purchase from you. All our expectations were fulfilled and we are more than amazed with the wonderful work of art you do with the highest expected quality. Thank a lot; the Thangkas we received have not only illuminated our spaces with the presence of the Higher Beings, but with the amusement of such an spectacular job.

We deeply thank your time and effort.

The two Thangkas arrived this morning! They are both VERY beautiful, VERY well done. The detail is just wonderful.

Thanks very much for making this possible. Please also thank the artists at the Dharmapala Center for me, and ask them also to thank the Monastery for the dedication. The monk who heads that Monastery is Thrangu Rinpoche, from whom I have had teachings. So it was especially nice to learn that his monks performed this dedication.

Thank you ever so much.

dear holm,
just to let you know the tara thangka has arrived here in vermont. you and your friends in nepal have done a very good job. the artwork and craftsmanship are really breathtaking.

throughout, you have managed this very well indeed. you have been extremely professional and helpful, with your guidance through the process, your updates on progress, and advice. i have to admit, the whole idea seemed like craftsmanship of the brocade mounting, even the packaging for shipping, and your contact and help during the whole process, are all truly remarkable.

thank you so much.
be well my friend be still.

The Throma Mandala thangka arrived yesterday afternoon. It is absolutely beautiful and very powerful. I am so grateful to you for being willing to work out all the seemingly endless details with me-- I am truly 100% happy with this masterpiece! In fact, "happy" is not nearly a strong enough word. It is absolutely perfect in every detail. The eneregy in my shrine room seems to have grown even stronger since the new thangka has been placed there. Thank you so very very much.

I have just received two thangkas of the 21 Taras and Vajrasattva. They are absolutely wonderfull and I have kept them two seats of honour in my home. They are arrived in a solid tube where they were very well protected. Holm kept me informed regularly of the progress. I would like to say that if we respect the thangkas we buy as real Buddhas, I think we create very good causes for our future. Moreover, I am quite convinced that people who will see your thangkas will create the same causes too. And finally it is a very good way to help the children of the orphanage !!!

Just this week I received a beautiful thangka of Buddha and Mara. It is the third thangka I have ordered over the years from Holm and the Dharmapala Centre. Each of them is an exquisite work of art. I so happy to have this beautiful this depiction of Buddha's overcoming Mara in my home and to have helped support the orphanage as well.

With many blessings and thanks

I enjoy viewing the Thangkas I recieved from Dharmapala Thangka Centre. They are very beautiful and almost come to life. They are highly detailed and I would not hesitate to order from them again. The Thangkas were also delivered very promptly, it took only 5 day for us to recieve them after they were finished. These beautiful artworks were definately worth the wait.

Dieses Mal haben wir 3 Thangkas nach Fotos aus der Malschule bestellt. Dennoch sind es einzigartige, einmalige Bilder für uns geworden, denn die Künstler haben ihrer Inspiration und Freude Raum gegeben, indem sie Details veränderten, die wir von Herzen empfangen haben als ein ganz persönliches Geschenk. Möge es ihnen Glück bringen und die Ursachen vom Glück!

Wir danken allen Beteiligten mit großer Freude!

Our thangkas are just exquisite, really beyond my descriptive abilities. The painting of the thangkas is so detailed, so carefully done down to the most minute detail, that the overall effect is astonishing. I keep going from room to room, staring for long periods of time at each of these masterpieces-- there is so much content in each painting that it will take a very long time to fully appreciate each one. To me, that is a sign of great art, to constantly see something new each time you look. But of course, these thangkas are way beyond being just art; they are entrances to other realities as well.

The most unexpected part of having these thangkas in our house is their powerful presence. They feel very alive, as though they are not just depictions of deities but the actual deities themselves. Dorje Phurba, Sange Menla, Sengedoma, Amitabha, Throma, the Bardo deities-- it feels as though they are all right here in our house, in our living room, in our bedroom, in my shrine room. Our whole house feels like a sacred realm, like a monastery. Very unexpected, very powerful and amazing. Meditating in my shrine room with the wrathful deities of Throma, Sengedoma and the bardo deities surrounding me has been a mind-boggling experience!

Not only are the paintings magnificent, but the brocades that frame them and the care with which they are sewn are even more beautiful than I had hoped for-- and the colors are perfect for each room. With these thangkas on the walls, the elegance of our new house has increased dramatically.

Nach langer Suche nach schönen Mandalas bin ich "durch Zufall" auf das Dharmapala Centre gestoßen. Hier wurde mein Traum von 3 individuell für mich angefertigten Mandalas wahr, die zusätzlich noch für mich geweiht worden sind.

Durch die hervorragende Betreuung von Herrn Triesch konnte ich mir für meine bestimmten Themen die entsprechenden Bildvorlagen heraussuchen, nach denen dann die Originale gemalt wurden.

Ein netter und gleichzeitig die Wartezeiten verkürzender Service stellen die zugemailten Fotos dar, die die auf diese Weise meine heißgeliebten Mandalas zu erhalten.

Vielen lieben Dank

I am the very proud owner of a beautifully painted Thangka purchased through the Dharmapala Thangka Centre. I was provided with digital 'progress' images during the painting period and was thus assured of the quality and craftsmanship of the finished item. Holm has been a model of contact and helpfulness and I thoroughly recommend the Centre for anyone interested in genuine Thangka art. I am also very proud that a portion of the cost is a donation to the orphanage thereby promoting the continuation of the art."

  Dieses besondere Samantabhadra-Thangka [4.39 Samantabhadra Refugee Field] - die Neu-Erstellung einer ungewöhnlichen alten Arbeit - ist nicht nur meisterlich gemalt und wunderschön, sondern es ist auch eine Quelle beständiger Inspiration. Als Buddhistin finde ich jeden ´neuen´ Gedanken, der sich während meines Lernens zeigt, wie durch Zauberei bereits auf diesem Bild wiedergegeben.

Ich bin sehr dankbar, diese Quelle der Freude an großer Kunstfertigkeit in Verbindung mit mir so vertrauter Spiritualität gefunden zu haben und nutzen zu dürfen. Mein großer Wunsch ist es, daß diese Quelle nie versiegt - auch deshalb nicht versiegen möge, um weiter ihre guten Werke
für die Waisenkinder Nepals tun zu können.

Thank you, Holm, for the beautiful antique thangka of Padmasambhava. It was just what I was hoping for. For anyone considering buying a thangka from Holm, be assured that he is honest and will answer all your questions. Since the thangka I purchased was antique, it had holes in it, which he pointed out to me before the purchase. He also sent me a picture that showed the colors more accurately than on the website, so I would be sure to know what I was buying. He let me know what to expect every step of the way. It was a real pleasure to do business with him.

Namaste. I was initially a little apprehensive over buying a thangka over the internet. But I guess I just love the Thangka posted on the website. I took my chances with Holm and I am glad I did not regret it. The communications between Holm and me throughout the period where I picked and have the Green Tara Mandala painted was great. And the quality of the painting turns out to be as I wish for. Thanks a lot Holm for the patience with me and would like to wish you all the best and hopefully, more people will patronise your webstore. By ordering a Thangka also helps in contributing to an Orphanage in Nepal. Yours In Dharma- SheeLiang
