I am pleased to present to you my free-style, non-traditional Chinese ink painting of Buddha. It is my hope that you will find these unique ink painting of Buddha providing a special calming influence. Shakyamuni Buddha says: “All compounded things are impermanent. All emotions are pain. All things have no inherent existence. And, Nirvana is beyond concepts.” These four views are the spine of Buddhism. We call them “truths” because they are simply facts. We seek enlightenment, and enlightenment means realization of the truth. Do not confuse these four views with Buddhism’s four noble truths which pertain solely to aspects of suffering. When you see that you will never come to the end of problem solving, that is the beginning of the search of inner truth. While Buddhism is not the answer to all the temporal problems and social injustice, if you happen to be searching, then you may find Buddha’s four views agreeable. When things fall apart, be fearless in difficult time and choose to turn the crisis into an opportunity for spiritual growth. We all have the potential to become enlightened if we follow these views that guide us on the path of Buddhism. Today, the Buddha is a symbol of possibility–encouraging us not to despair but to dive deeply into our hearts to find the wisdom that can heal and liberate us. It is our buddha-nature that inspires us to reach out a hand to comfort and support a friend in need, to forgive someone who has harmed us, and to say no to injustice. It is our buddha-nature that grieves at the pain in the world and rejoices at happiness and love. Our buddha-nature brings us back to the cushion when we face difficulty and pain, trusting that we can find the understanding and steadfastness to meet our life. (Note:  As my donation, the original paintings of this category have been shipped to Daifukuji Temple in Hawaii on 09/18/2017.)
