sacred art is revered as a creation of enlightened consciousness. Its
brilliant colors and forms awaken the mind and energize consciousness;
its images stimulate capacities for visualization and nourish the heart.
By evoking and communicating the qualities of realization directly,
these images assure that insight will not be reduced to abstract
concepts, but will remain a living experience. Tibetan pratictioners
have used these precious images for over twelve hundred years to open
the path of wisdom.
