Vajrapani where Vajra is thunderbolt and Pani means to hold, thus the one who holds thunderbolt. Vajrapani is the Boddhisattva who represents the power of all buddhas. He is called the master of unfathomable mysteries who upholds truth even in the adversities of darkness and ignorance.

“Thangka art demands discipline and perseverance to master- I take pride in being one of the few women Thangka artists. I am proud of our Thangka heritage and culture and my everlasting hope is that with my work I can create an identity for myself and more importantly make people see beyond the boundaries of male vs female artists and just fall in love with our art for what it is, magical and beautiful” An ever-present smile that belies her physical challenges (polio in both legs), Krishna Tashi Palmo is one of Meraki’s most inspiring artists. She learnt at the Tibetan traditional art school from 2006 to 2012 in Himachal Pradesh’s Lahual Sipiti district. Her dream of being an artist since she was a child pushed her to learn Thangka art despite being told that women cannot practice Thangka art in her class of 350 students which had only 4 aspiring female artists.  Such is her love for art that she also takes out time to teach children at the local NGO in her town.
