Homage to the Four Fold Refuge
Chinese ink and Japanese mineral paint on Bhutanese Tsasho paper, 2012
The main body of calligraphy is a special high form of Uchen, inspired by a 16th century manuscript from Tsurphu Monastery, the main seat of the Karmapa Lamas in central Tibet. The first dark maroon characters read Namo in Lantsa script and this translates as homage. At the end of the prayer is a full stop character in the same Lantsa script. The smaller lettering in red at the end of the refuge prayer, translates as The Four Fold Refuge.
The four objects of refuge are highlighted throughout the main body of calligraphy in rust red mineral paint that read: Lama, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha
