Introduction into the Sacred Art of Tibet: Wheel of Life

Friday, April 12th. 7-8:30pm

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

It is not a requirement to attend first night to attend this lecture.

This course will focus on the most amazing image in the Tibetan Buddhist iconography:  WHEEL OF LIFE (Tib. Sipai Khorlo)

First described in the Extensive Enjoyment Sutra by Buddha Shakyamuni, this diagram depicts the nature and causes of cyclic existence.  Yama, the lord of death holds the wheel in his teeth and claws reminding the viewer of impermanence and that there is not a single being in cyclic existence who is outside the control of death. To break the chain of endless cyclic of death and rebirth we need to eliminate the fundamental delusions of ignorance, hatred and greed, depicted by the three animals – pig, snake and pigeon – in the hub of the wheel.

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.
