Buddhist Art and Symbols

In the Lamrim teachings it says that just seeing an image of a Buddha places a potentiality on the mind that is a definite cause of enlightenment, and which nothing can destroy.

Prints are available in various sizes and formats including mini cards, postcards, art prints, large format prints and canvases. These blessed images can be used meaningfully as a reminder of a particular Buddha you can carry with you, a meaningful focal point for your place of contemplation, or a centrepiece for your meditation room.

  1. Images of the Thirty-five Confession Buddhas - A6
    Looking with faith at the images of the Thirty-five Confession Buddhas and reciting their names has a positive and purifying effect on our mind. Our mind will be filled with inspiring blessings, thus making us more peaceful and relaxed. We will also awaken our potentiality to see actual Buddhas in the future, and create the causes within our own mind to develop the sublime enlightened qualities these beings possess. In the practice known as The Bodhisattva’s Confession of Moral Downfalls, one of the most powerful methods for purifying our mind of all negativity, we request these Buddhas to witness our confession and dedication of merit, and we prostrate in their presence.
