Buddhism teaches us that the greatest mind is a mind that lets go, and the greatest wisdom comes from seeing through appearances. This painting depicted a Buddha resembling the mural image of Shakyamuni Buddha inside Samye, Tibet’s oldest monastery, founded in the 8th century CE by two Indian masters. The complex takes the form of a huge cosmic diagram, or mandala. The central multistoried temple — said to combine Tibetan, Indian and Chinese styles — represents Sumeru, the mountain at the center of the universe.
