Hi, your 21 Tara Thangka looks very beatiful and I wonder whether you would so kind to answer a question.

It looks like you are following the Longchen Nyingthig lineage. I am in the process of provisioning an applique version of this Thangka and I am wondering about the layout of the 20 Taras around the main green figure?

How did you decides that?

Best wishes for the completion

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply.

Yes, you are right, this thangka is 21 taras of Longchen Nyingthig.
I have checked many thangkas and sadhanas before I start this and one of them is the text from Dilgo Khentse rinpoche.

In that text it is said that there is a main green tara at the center and 20 taras around her making 2 circles of 10 taras. And the first Tara sitting in front of main Tara.

I hope this is what you asked and will help you.

By the way, thanks to you I've found that many images of English version of the blog is not showing. I'll correct it. Thank you.
