The Eight Auspicious Symbols
10-week Thangka Art Course | Nov 10, 2023-Jan 21, 2024

The Eight Auspicious Buddhist Symbols are derived from a group of early Indian symbols of royalty which were presented at ceremonies (such as the coronation of a king).
Besides being decorative, these symbols are seen as an auspicious sign of spiritual and material well-being. As it’s such a popular symbol among Tibetan Buddhists it can be found in most homes and as well as in monasteries.
No drawing experience is needed.
