The Mysterious And Amazing World Of Gesar Art Is Right Next To You And Waiting For Your Visit

  Gesar Art Gallery Inc. located at northern Dege County where was the birthplace of Gesar. We have run Tibetan artworks shop in DeGe, Tibet more than 20 years. We are now one of the biggest Tibetan antique & handicrafts shop in DeGe Country. Shop is run by full-time Buddhists, devoted to practices of the Tibetan tradition.

Gesar is a heroic epic collectively created by China's Tibetans. Originating in the folk oral traditions, Gesar passed down through Tibetan generations in a combination of song and narration for over 1,000 years. So far, Gesar has been collected as a work composed of more than 120 volumes, with more than 1 million verses, altogether over 20 million words, 25 times the length of the Iliad. Gesar, is the greatest work of Tibetan literature, Gesar is easily the lengthiest epic in the world, and also became popular in ballads among the Mongols and Tus.

King Gesar was born a son of supreme god Indira. In the youth, he was mischievous to the point of wickedness, unruly, but divine by nature and possessing supernature. His great antagonist was his paternal uncle, cowardly, vain and pretentious, who hoped to rule the country. The hero was banished with his mother, but his exile enabled him to build up hidden strength. He came out victorious in a horse race, whose winner was to become the country's king. Then he started to conquer the kingdom of demons, the Jiang kingdom and the Hor (northern people, Mongolian) kingdom. The war between `Ling' and Hor kingdoms was one of the central pieces in the story. The war between `Ling' and Hor started with a beautiful girl, Qomu, the queen of king Gesar. The Hor king, `white tent king', heard about her beauty, and sent a message to `Ling' king for her. Upon the refusal, Hor king sent troops to attack `Ling' kingdom. After several battles, another girl was sent to Hor king in the place of Qomu. The trickery was discovered, and battle renewed. The capital of `Ling' was captured by Hor troop with queen Qomu. King Gesar summarized all his troops and with the help of an important Hor general, captured the capital of Hor, killed the `white tent king' and rescued Qomu.

In Tibetan-inhabited areas Gesar has been known as the king of the ancient Tibetan kingdom of Ling. The great hero and his brave army are kept alive in the richly imaginative retelling of the epic. From early times the epic was passed on orally (See Gesar Bards and Artists). Today a small number of woodblock preserving sections of the epic can be found in Lhasa, Xigaze and Dege County in Sichuan Province and some handwritten copies in the homes of families high and low. The Potala Palace still has a statue of Gesar, drawing pilgrims every day. Gesar was the king of Ling in the 11th century, and more of his deeds were recorded in the Kangba region than anywhere else. Handwritten and printed versions of Gesar from Dege are considered the most authoritative works, and in Dege, people still argue that the village of Ngaxu in northern Dege County was the birthplace of Gesar.

Maitreya

Maitreya, Bodhisattva (Tibetan: cham pa. English: the One of Love), currently residing in the Tushita heaven, the next Buddha to appear in the world.

Beautiful and peaceful, Maitreya is yellow in colour (gold painted) with one face and two hands performing the Dharma Teaching mudra (gesture) at the heart while holding the stems of two utpala flowers blossoming at both ears supporting on the right a water flask and on the left a Dharma Wheel. Adorned with gold and jewel ornaments, a crown, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and the like, he wears various flowing silk scarves and lower robes; he sits upright atop a red lotus seat and white snow lion supported throne with the legs extended in front resting on a lotus stand.

The venerable Maitreya was invested as the king of the gods in the Tushita heaven by the Victorious One himself and is the archetypal model for the Mahayana tradition of the paramita approach. In the future, following the period of the Sage's teachings, he will turn the wheel of the dharma in this world and demonstrate the deeds of a buddha, opening the eyes of those to be guided to liberation and so forth. He has mastery over enlightened activity, such as ensuring that those who have faith in him will be the foremost of his retinue.
