“As a painter I have a personal connection and of course I paint for my own enjoyment and as something that helps me with my path. As I intend to live a dual life – as a practitioner and an artist, my aim is for this to benefit others, to inspire others to have a dual life as well, to see the two as inseparable – being an artist and being a practitioner and in that sense to help people self-guide and also to be a model for them.
Secondly, my aim is to bring benefit in the form of a product – something to be shared and appreciated. Also, something that could generate funds which could go toward a good cause – temple building, buying statues and such – so that people who purchase the art also gain some merit in this way. I have a feeling, I don’t know why I have this feeling but I do, that this will be very successful.” Kongtrul Rinpoche today, July 14th 12:15 p.m.
