About the Art

It is said that when Buddha sermoned humans and animals, even the gods in heaven congregated to listen to him. The softness of his voice was carried miles by the current of air and enlivened everything on its path. Even after 2600 years, his teachings are still prevalent; guiding and teaching us selflessness, compassion and impermanence. This painting by Shrestha portrays Buddha’s sermon to Bodhivastva Vajrapani in a sacred room, as the deities drawn on the walls comes alive to listen and learn from his teaching.
