This original canvas painting depicts a blue lotus flower in mandala form. The lotus is one of the most important symbols in Buddhist culture.
As the lotus blossoms in mud, it symbolizes the purity of the enlightened mind amidst the suffering of samsara. It also signifies non attachment, as it is rooted in mud, but its flowers blossom and are untouched.
The painting has been completed by skilled artisans from Nepal using traditional thanka painting techniques.
