Guru Rinpoché Mantra on Lapis Clouds
The sacred mantra of Padmasambhava, known by Tibetan Buddhists as Guru Rinpoché, pronounced oṃ āḥ hūṃ vajra guru padma siddhi hūṃ༔
This private commission is illuminated with 23.5ct gold leaf on a background of azurite mineral pigment, for that timeless classic combination of rich gold on deep Lapis like blue.
A shaded layering of a cloud pattern, reminiscent of an ancient Asian brocade, adds to the splendour, as well as floating this sacred mantra as if in the nights sky.
For the faithful Tibetan Buddhists practitioner, this mantra dispels inner and outer obstacles to accomplish all positive activities. Which presented in such luminosity as this art-piece, can be an engaging visualisation aid for meditation and recitation.
