Illustrated with the magnificent murals painted by great master Dawa Lhadripa from Nepal in the Thaye Dorje meditation hall in Karma Guen, this book makes the timeless wisdom behind the classic allegories of Buddha's life accessible. THE KARMA GADRI TRADITION OF THANGKA PAINTING The unique art work spreading on 1,111 square meters of the meditation hall's walls is a masterpiece of the Karma Gadri tradition. This is the first piece of work master painter Dawa created in Europe. This masterpiece is the result of seven years of detailed work and a life time of training. The unique tradition of Karma Gadri has characterized the Kagyu Lineage since the 15th century. Only a few artists continue to master this elegant style of traditional painting. In our fast and modern Western world, Buddha's wisdom transmitted through the wall painting of Karma Guen is maybe even more precious than it has ever been before.
