Description

Here are the details of the sold painting:

Mantra Mandala

This piece is painted on cotton canvas in classic black and gold with coloured Lotus petals in the centre of the Mandala, image size – 280mm x 280mm.

This striking painting is presented in a square black box frame and double mounted behind black core and antique white board. Overall framed dimension – 430mm x 430mm.

 

The mantra inscription reads Om Mani Padme Hum which is perhaps the most famous of all the Buddhist mantras.

The basic English translation of Om Mani Padme Hum is “Om Jewel in the Lotus Hum” or “Praise to the Jewel in the Lotus.” However, the meaning and significance of the six Tibetan syllables have been interpreted in a variety of ways.

One common interpretation is that each syllable corresponds to one of the six realms of existence and purifies the vice associated with that realm:

Om purifies bliss and pride (realm of the gods)
Ma purifies jealousy and need for entertainment (realm of the jealous gods)
Ni purifies passion and desire (human realm)
Pad purifies ignorance and prejudice (animal realm)
Me purifies poverty and possessiveness (realm of the hungry ghosts)
Hum purifies aggression and hatred (hell realm)
