Andy Weber | Tibetan Art Workshop
Tibetan Art Workshop:
Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava and the Wheel of Life
Sat 25, Sun 26, Mon 27 May
09:00 - 18:00 each day
GURU RINPOCHE – PADMASAMBHAVA
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. Senior students are invited to focus on the drawing and painting of the Wheel of Life. Students will have a choice to either draw and paint Guru Rinpoche or the Wheel of Life.
The end result is not as important as the path getting there. A modest artistic talent is required. Genuine perseverance and devotion to the subject are the important qualities students should bring along.
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.
