Zotec - "Vajrasattva" (Acrylic on cotton, 2002)

"My experience of painting Thangkas has led me to the realisation of the value of devotional practice associated with a deep desire to transform negative states of mind. To see the deities as aspects of one's own nature allows a gradual opening of perception to include all beings and a deeper compassion inevitably follows."
