    Commissioning or buying a thangka drawing
    Carmen can make you a drawing on commission. Any size is welcome and will be drawn in consultation with you (including special dedications & blessings on the back) making it a very personal thangka drawing. Traditionally, by commissioning a thangka, you will ‘bring the Buddha alive‘ which, according to Tibetan-Buddhism, brings on very positive karma and stabilizes your connection with the Buddha and the path to enlightenment, in this life and in future lives. Click here for more information on buying one of these thangka drawings or commissioning one.
