Tibetan Buddhist  Eighth Karmapa Mikyo Dorje

Tibetan Buddhist Eighth Karmapa Mikyo Dorje

Tibetan Buddhist Eighth Karmapa Mikyo Dorje

Mikyo Dorje was the eighth Karmapa. His title means the head of the Karma Kagyu, one of the four major sects of Buddhism in Tibet. He was born in 1507 and died in 1554. His birth was also a source of great anecdote. It is said that when he was born in the Satam in Eastern Tibet, he was said to have spoken “Karmapa” upon birth. His legacy includes commentary on Madhyamaka, Abhidharma, Tantric, and Mahamudra content. He also presented guru yoga in four sessions which then became a foundation for some Karma Kagyu lessons.

The eight Karmapa was also said to be good at painting and metal crafting. This thangka is a fitting tribute to him who has greatly influenced the art pieces in his generation. In this depiction, he is shown in a seating vajra position on a moon disc and lotus throne. He wears the three red robes of a monk as well as the Karmapa’s signature Black Hat (Vajra Crown). His arms are crossed, the right one over his left, in a vajra humkara mudra. He holds the two-method and wisdom attributes of the five-pronged golden vajra and ritual bell. These two lay above blue lotus, the color of the flower symbolizes triumph over the senses and of wisdom. His expression shows a mix of bliss and emptiness. His aura is also painted blue and gold, accentuated with color in the lotus throne. The bottom part appears a set of offerings that traditionally is a skull cup with swirls of blue nectar and blood along with the sense organs for heart, nose, eyes, ears, and tongue.

IAs a serious student and teacher of Bhagavad Gītā, Upaniṣad and Jyotiṣa I have found you have some good editions of English with sanskrit texts. Having texts of high quality with both is essential.   This has been a user friendly experience
