Mother Earth is the most beautiful Bodhisattva – landscape
“Mother Earth is the most beautiful Bodhisattva” created as tribute to the late Thich Nhat Hanh who originally composed and calligraphed this quote in English.
Choosing landscape composition, to allow two longer lines of calligraphy, briskly bushed in cursive Umé script.
A sphere of gold leaf enclosing the words ས་ཡི་གོ་ལ་ – meaning celestial sphere of planetary Earth.
Gold; because the mythological basis of our world is poetically described as made of gold – གསེར་གྱི་ས་གཞི།
The quote in full – མ་ཡུམ་ས་ཡི་གོ་ལ་ནི་བྱངཆུབ་་སེམས་དཔའ་རབ་ཏུ་མཛེས་པ་ཉིད་དོ། was translated with special thanks to Lowell Cook.
This is the second piece created on this same theme, the first being of a portrait composition.
