                                                       A thanka from Tibet
  
 

 

Due to extremely low quality of the photocopy we could not determine what kind of thanka it was.

A small thanka of Tsonkapa (the founder of the Gelugpa school) that once hung in the temple in Kalmykia and then in the Belgrade temple was rescued.
 

The temple had a library with many valuable manuscripts kept in boxes made of wood or enveloped in yellow scarfs. Some of the manuscripts were written in golden letters on black paper.
