An Achala Textile & The Fifth Dalai Lama - Added

May 31, 2014 ·

Is it possible that the famous and well published woven textile image of Arya Achala of the Sakya Tradition, housed in the Potala Palace, is the same Miyowa textile of Phagpa Rinpoche discussed below?

"The general treasurer of Zhalu made arrangements for performing the auspice ceremony of longevity for me with gifts that included the woven image of Miyowa, which was once the spiritual relic of Phagpa Rinpoche." (The passage was written in 1662. The Illusive Play, the Autobiography of the Fifth Dalai Lama. Chapter 38, page 479-480. Translated by Samten G. Karmay. Serindia Publications, 2014).
