The Kilkhor Mandala
The Kilkhor Mandala represents an imaginary palace that is contemplated during meditation. Each object in the palace has signification, representing an aspect of wisdom or reminding the meditator of a guiding principal. The mandala’s purpose is to help transform ordinary mind into enlightened ones and to assist with positive feelings.
The Buddhist Tantric teachings include methods for the purification of the psychophysical within a pure environment or mandala. The deities who inhabit a mandala are not external gods; rather, they symbolize the enlightened state, which everyone has the potential to realize.

I am from Radhi, Tashigang. I have studied up to class VIII. From a young age, I have great interest in drawing. My interest in drawing pursued me to join Choki Traditional Art School.
I am glad to have received this great opportunity to pursue my passion. I am optimistic of realizing my dream of becoming a good painter and contribute to upholding the traditional arts of my country.
I am grateful to the school and all the supporters for this wonderful opportunity, without which life would be difficult for me.
