In Thich Nhat Hanh’s book, “Creating True Peace”, he explains that practicing peace is possible with every step, with every breath. It is possible for us to practice together and bring hope and compassion into our daily lives and into the lives of our families, our community, our nation, and the world."
The night before his enlightenment, the Buddha was attacked by Mara, the Tempter, the Evil One. Mara and his army of demons shot thousands of arrows at the Buddha, but as the arrows neared him, they turned into flowers and fell harmlessly at his feet.
Inspired by my dear friend Jaybe aka TruePotential and a new endeavor that many here are joining into to help with the Tibetan Relief Fund by donating artwork to the gallery for proceeds to help these children in need…
This mandala of a lotus with a rainbow reflection reminded me of the Buddha story and creating Peace with Mindfulness and Awareness. I am posting it now here to introduce this project…if you are interested in purchasing it, please click the link for True Potential and purchase from that gallery to help the children of Tibet…Namaste’
