More and more people are embracing the teachings and meditation methods from Buddhist traditions. Coloring has proven to be a great help for depression, chronic pain, mindfulness, and meditation so the marriage of these two ideas is a natural segue.
Buddhist Art Coloring
Connect with the sacred art of Buddhism through the creative act of coloring. Buddhist art is rich in symbolism and meaning. Taking the time to color and interact with these symbols and motifs is a simple yet profound way to practice mindfulness and move closer to a greater awareness of one’s own essential nature. The drawings in the Buddhist Art book are hand-painted with a small brush by Robert Beer.
The artist Robert Beer’s hand-painted images span centuries of the tradition, including spiritual adventurers, rebellious saints, and enlightened Tantric masters. The detailed artwork is elegant and meaningful—drawing on Buddhist teachings to give each piece greater depth.
Coloring for Meditation With Tibetan Buddhist Art
Tibetan Buddhists have long seen art as a powerful meditative practice, but you need not be Buddhist to enjoy coloring the fifty illustrations here. These illustrations come from the talented artist Tashi Dhargyal, a Tibetan thangka master based in Sonoma, CA. Previously, he was the artist-in-residence at Jhangtse Khang, a branch of Ganden Monastery in Dharamsala, India.
Since his arrival in the US in 2010, he has taught and exhibited at many museums and galleries.
Though Tashi’s primary focus through 2018 is the massive two-story ceremonial thangka he is creating at his Tibetan Gallery & Studio.
His art graces the pages of this stunning meditation coloring book with 50 illustrations taken from his gallery work.
