7.5 16th KARMAPA

20.5 x 25 inch / 54 x 63 cms

Shakyamuni Buddha Scenes from the Buddhas life illustrate the twelve major acts of a Buddha, as well as his interactions with members of the Sangha; scenes from the Jatakas, or birth stories, recall events in the Buddhas past lives as a Bodhisattva.

These paintings reveal the operation of karma, the value of virtuous action, the nature of compassion, and the attitudes that support the path to enlightenment.
