Tara Mural Worldwide Project
TARA MURAL PROJECT - 2000 and beyond
Homage to my precious Teacher, 16th Gyalwa Karmapa who told me to paint citywalls in America.
Tara is one of the many names and forms of Primordial Mother, vibrant space, embodiments of Wisdom and Compassion and the Mother of all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. The Buddhas are the Enlightened Ones and the Bodhisattvas are their spiritual daughters and sons. They perform enlightened activities, like shepherds, guiding beings onto the path of Enlightenment. Always remaining and returning to existence until all Beings, all existence is fully Enlightened.
1984, I completed a sketch for a large mural of TARA, to be painted in New YorkCity due to an invitation from the National Endowments for the Arts. Later I wastold by a project committee, that the funds were not sufficient. I was waiting inNew York with materials but without wall space. Instead, I completed largecanvases of TARA, and later departed to Bodhgaya, India, to paint an interiorTemple in a Tibetan Monastery, depicting the life story of Shakyamuni Buddha.
I pray that funding will materialize, to provide us with wall spaces on suitablebuildings, scaffoldings for 3 - 6 weeks, preparations of the walls, materials, funding towards the artists work and expenses, The walls should not face direct sunlight for too long each day. It secures the longevity of the colors. Outdoor murals lasts for a long time, provided they are cleaned, restored and sealed about every 15 year. The murals can also be painted on indoor walls in public places such as in Hospitals, Prisons, Universities etc.
I pray that these projects will inspire people to study, practice preciousDharma, establishing inner peace.
Great Spirit is beyond duality. Awaken reverence for Primordial Mother,vibrant space, establish equanimity.
