Rainbow Meditation - original

The Tibetan word for the hues of a rainbow is འཇའ་ - a nicely balanced looking word, which is here playfully created in rainbow colours in the style of traditional Thangka painting.


The calligraphy below translates as:

"Visualisation meditation - Clearly Visible but insubstantial like a rainbow shining in the sky"

དམིགས་སྒོམ། སྣང་ལ་རང་བཞིན་མེད་པ་ནམ་མཁར་འཇའ་ཚོན་ཤར་བ་ལྟ་བུ།


This refers to the various stages of visualisation which are practiced as vividly translucent, not solid - just like the luminous colours of a rainbow, which are impossible to physically catch hold of.
