The Five Buddhas
In the Vajrayana Buddhist philosophy conceived the idea that the world is composed of Five Cosmic Elements - Fire, Water, Earth, Air and Ether - symbolised by these five Dhyani Buddhas.
Unlike historical figures, such as Gautama Buddha, they are transcendent beings who represent intangible fores and divine principles. It is believed these beings are "self-born" celestial Buddhas that have existed since the dawn of time.
These beings act as spiritual guides, helping people face the powerful forces challenging their path to Enlightenment. Meditating on the Five Dhyani Buddhas and what they represent can serve as a tool for self-restraint, in order to avoid both self-indulgence and self-denial.
ABOUT THE ARTIST - Karma Tshering
From an early age, Tshering has been influenced by the local flora documenting the flowers, trees and mountains with paint and pencil.
Alongside his exposure to nature within his region, he was also immersed by the strong iconography of the Traditional Buddhist Arts.
His practice blends both worlds, balancing between the traditional Buddhist motifs in combination with abstract forms. Collectively, his body of work stimulates the mind, reflecting the emotional freedom, balance and unity within Buddhist teachings. Through strong visual compositions he emphasises a message of peace to the world through his paintings.
