Thangka Painting & White Tara
On invitation of the Drukpa Singapore Centre, renowned thangka painter and teacher Carmen Mensink from The Netherlands will offer a special evening on The Art of Thangka Painting and on White Tara, the Buddha of Longevity.
Thangkas are the scroll paintings that are made in the ancient Tibetan Buddhist tradition, that is surrounded by lots of rituals. This evening you will learn all about it, and get a better understanding of this beautiful and meditative art. After this you will look at a thangka in a different way.
In addition, Carmen will explain about the backgrounds and symbolism of White Tara.
White Tara (Tib. Drolkar) is one of the main longevity deities in the Tibetan
Buddhist pantheon. Her practice can be done to prolong your life and to overcome life-threatening obstacles such as illnesses.
Join us for this special evening!
Date: Friday 14 Feb. 2020
