Union of Wisdom & Compassion

28" x 22" Framed. Painting 18" x 13"

Union of Wisdom & Compassion is an icon of the enlightened mind in which desire and wrath are transformed into rapturous compassion. Chakrasamvara embraces his consort Vajravarahi. Their union represents the inseparability of emptiness , wisdom and compassion, female and male. This empathic embrace of all existence expresses the essential  spirit of the Tantric tradition. So desire becomes compassion, aggression becomes clarity and ignorance transforms into the awareness of the interdepenent nature of all life.

When  desire no longer clings to an object , it awakens to its primordial nature which no longer divides into self and other. This blissful awareness encompasses all life and emotions allowing the vision of selfless ecstasy.

All creation begins with the sacred union of male and female energies. To experience the pure creative passion between man and woman, to know unconditional love, is to manifest  the body, mind and spirit of Buddha.
