The price given below is for one page. It is possible to purchase single or multiple pages.
When Tibetan Sutra books are introduced to the market today, those complete books are taken apart to sell single pages separately. This is expected to produce better sales results than if the book was sold as a whole. The individual pages are then useless for Buddhist practice, thus cultural heritage has been destroyed.
The Dharmapala Thangka Centre does not support this practice. The pages were not bought, but a gift.
Unfortunately, even the 13 sheets offered here are no longer complete. The pages 1 - 3, 7 and 15 are missing. Thus it is hardly still ascertainable around which Sutra text it concerns.
Especially the first page would have been important for determination. Of course, we did not support these practices by making a purchase. The pages were a gift
The immaterial damage caused by the destruction of the book is irreparable. As a small compensation, the proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated in full to a Buddhist monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal, and the buyer will receive proof of his donation.
All twelve of the thirteen pages are double-sided, the last one since 18 only single-sided.
The page numbers can be taken from the inscription on the side of each front page. They are also listed on the respective front sides of the leaves including the inscription in Tibetan on the photos.
