We will explore the art and common symbolism of some of the most important images formally known as “Thangkas” and Mandalas in Buddhism. A basic understanding of the tradition of spiritual self-transformation embodied by these icons of Tibetan Buddhism will add to your understanding of the concepts discussed in this course but is not a requirement. Explore the bold colors, strange creatures, and exquisitely beautiful images used on the path to enlightenment.
