Description

Tibetan Art Lecture: Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava and the Wheel of Life

Andy Weber

Friday 24 May

19:00 - 21:00


/ABOUT

This course will explore the remarkable mahasiddha Padmasambhava ( the lotus born), who stabilized the first wave of Dharma into Tibet in the 8th century . Known for his mystical and magical powers he laid the foundation for the old school called Nying.ma. Even today his followers still rely on his hidden treasures (termas), the direct teaching and instructions he left behind.

Hands-on-tuition will be given for drawing and painting techniques. Besides instructions like canvas making and natural colours, we will make colour charts with modern paints to simplify the painting process.

Meditation on the WHEEL OF LIFE, mantra recitation and prayers will make this course a unique and deep experience.

Attending all lectures is important to gain an insight into the importance of Guru Rinpoche and the development of the Dharma through the Wheel of Life.
