What is the message of feminine imagery in Tibetan art and its connection with the personification of wisdom?
The strong role of the feminine in Tibetan mystical art is common to the meditation halls of monasteries and nunneries, as well as temples and shrines. Come and find out who these female Buddha forms are and what they represent. Glenn will discuss the significance and tradition of the feminine in Tibetan Buddhism and its relevance to the practice of Tibetan Buddhism today.
