Next chance to see the gigantic 21 Taras Thangka is at…. news coming soon!   Bring friends and family to open hearts and free minds of negativity. Of architectural proportions, it’s taller than a 4-storey building!

The 21 Taras Thangka presents ancient sacred geometry that quiets the mind just by looking at it. Images of deities are a valuable tool for those of us who find meditation difficult!  Gaze at beauty, strength and fearlessness. Take a shortcut to a calm mind in an agitated world.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche commissioned and gave this awe-inspiring thangka to Tara Institute, asking us to display to as many people as possible. It took 4 years to paint and it’s already here. Rinpoche says it will bless animals and humans, so it is open to anyone of any belief or any way of life.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche“This is a way to leave imprints for all the people [who see it], for enlightenment.”
Lama Zopa Rinpoche


‘Just as all past Buddhas have been liberated, may I be liberated from discontent, from fears, external dangers, internal delusions and confusion! May this meaning take root in my mind!’  (Translation of the Sanskrit mantra of Green Tara)

About The 21 Taras Thangka

What is a ‘thangka’?

A ‘thangka’ is a visual image of the perfectly developed heart and mind which, to Buddhists, is the innate potential of every living being. Thangkas are sometimes sewn and embroidered and most are framed in brocade. Giant thangkas are traditionally displayed for special occasions and huge gatherings.
This vast thangka of the 21 Taras was painted in acrylic on canvas by a highly respected Swiss artist trained in the Tibetan tradition, Peter Iseli.

Even when it is rolled up, the thangka can only be transported on the back of a semi-trailer. Here you see it about to be taken away from Tara Institute in Brighton…

The 21 Taras Thangka is 14 metres high and 9.5 metres wide.

It stands taller than a 4 storey building, so standing in front of it, you will certainly appreciate why it took the artist, Peter Iseli, so many years to paint.
