Asian Mythology (Buddhism, Hinduism, etc)

Though I don't consider myself a Buddhist in the strict sense of the word, certain spects of Buddhism had a great impact on my life. Its iconography, especially that of Tibetan and Mongolian Buddhism also influenced me. This board contains mostly paintings inspired by Tibetean thangkas (scroll paintings) and traditional representations of Indian, Chinese, Tibetan deities.

Quan Yin and the Yellow Dragon. Quan Yin is the godess of limitless compassion in the Chinese and Japanese mythology. The Yellow Dragon is associated with luck, longevity, the element Earth. I saw the original of this painting somewhere on the internet, and I painetd it as a sigillum between the 25th December 2013 - 5th of January 2014, to balance the challenging constellations of 2014.

Padmasambhava, 2009. January. A popular deity  of Indo- Tibetan mythology. He offers strong protection and guidance in our lifetime, during our dreams (his mantras, meditations play an important role in dream yoga) and also in the states of Bardo (the interval between death and rebirth), where he removes the obstacles and dangers and guides the soul towards a successful rebirth.

Mahakala, Tibetan Ber Nag Chen ,  is a powerfully-protective emanation of  the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Chenresig (Sanskr. Avalokiteswara). He  defends the Dharma, guides and protects Buddhist practitioners from all kinds of inner and outer obstacles and gives them the power to overcome life’s challenges.  The current work, meant to cumulate the energies of the earth trine between Jupiter (Capricorn) and Saturn (Virgo), 2008 Autumn  was inspired by a Mongolian scroll painting

Mahākāla is typically black in color. Just as all colors are absorbed and dissolved into black, all names and forms are said to melt into those of Mahakala, symbolizing his all-embracing, comprehensive nature. Black can also represent the total absence of color,  in this case  signifying the nature of Mahakala as ultimate reality. His crown of five skulls represent the transmutation of the five  kleshas( negative afflictions) into the five wisdoms. 2011. May, inspired by a Tibetan painting.

"Ő a szelíd és könyörületes Avalókitésvara bódhiszattva haragos formája. . A tibeti nomádok sátrainak és a kolostorok védelmezője, emellett az egész tibeti buddhizmus őrzője. Az a feladata, hogy elsimítsa az akadályokat, növelje az életet, erényt és bölcsességet; vonzóvá tegye a buddhizmust és megszüntesse a zavarodottságot és tudatlanságot. - See more at: http://www.buddhapest.hu/2012/11/nyolc-dharmapala.html#sthash.aJKZCb7H.dpuf" 2088 okt- nov

Mahakála az egyik legnépszerűbb tibeti védelmező. Legtöbbször fekete színben ábrázolják, hiszen a fekete az, melybe minden más szín eltűnik, beleveszik így aztán a fekete Mahakála az melybe minden név és forma beleolvad, egyetlen megtestesülésként hangsúlyozva az ő mindent átölelő, mindenre kiterjedő természetét. A fekete szín így  a végső és egyetlen valóságot jelképezi. Egy 2011. június, http://www.buddhapest.hu/2012/11/nyolc-dharmapala.html#sthash.aJKZCb7H.dpuf"
