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.

Tharpa's authentic and extensive collection of prints comes in a range of over 100 designs, depicting various Buddhas, Buddhist Deities, Buddhist Masters, symbols and quotes. 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.
