First of two consecutive nights of lectures on Sacred Buddhist Images with Andy Weber

This lecture will focus on the image of Buddha Shakyamuni, and its deeper symbolism in relation to the Wheel of Life. All sacred images are considered “ten.pa”, meaning support in Tibetan. Not only support for daily meditation but as guides throughout one’s life. The sacred image expresses the essential teachings of the Buddha and his message. “Dharma without words”.

Not to be missed for anybody who wants to gain an understanding of the sacred imagery of Tibetan Buddhist and uses the images in their meditations to follow the path to Enlightenment.

Andy Weber is also leading a weekend art retreat at LMB. See info and register here.
