Compassion by Karma Phuntsok, Chenrezig Buddha of Compassion, Avalokitesvara, Tibetan Buddhist Thangka


Chenrezig embodies the compassion of all the Buddhas. As a Bodhisattva, Chenrezig has made a commitment to remain in samsara until all sentient beings have attained enlightenment.

The background of this painting is composed of wheels of perfect circles, each placed with Chenrezig's mantra "Om Mani Padme Hung." He is floating above his lotus seat over a double dorje, the symbolic thunderbolt that strikes through ignorance. Below his lotus are offerings: the dharma wheel, the conch shell, and flower offerings of flame, flowers and nectar.

This painting resides in the temple at Shoshoni Yoga Retreat.

Karma Phuntsok is a pioneer of Tibetan contemporary art and one of the few Tibetan artists who directly experienced the Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1959. After escaping to India, Karma studied traditional Tibetan thangka painting for several years. In the 1970's, he began to explore new techniques and materials, interweaving modern with traditional symbols. Karma's paintings are now held in public and private collections around the world. As one of today's most influential artists, Karma has also paved the way for others, both Tibetan and non-Tibetan, seeking new ways to combine traditional Tibetan iconography with contemporary work.

Thank you for this amazing print! Absolutely beautiful and brings such peace. When ordering the print, I really appreciate the detailed description Shoshoni Yoga Gallery provided about the painting and its creation as well as the print options. I loved the painting and it was interesting to learn this information about it.
