“Peaceful White Light”

This painting of Shiwa Okar, Primordial Lha embodying dynamic basic goodness, is particularly relevant as a visual aid to the Werma sadhana – a meditation practice within the graduated training of Shambhala Buddhist meditation.

Like the Primordial Rigden thangka painting, the Artsit worked closely with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, spiritual leader of the international Shambhala Buddhist community, to create this painting according to His wishes and within the iconographical standards of Himalayan Buddhist art.

The inaugural print of the first edition was presented to The Sakyong during the week-long celebration of His wedding with Khandro Tseyang Palmo Ripa at the family’s monastery in Orissa Province, India, during Losar celebration of the New Year of the Fire Boar, 2007.

The original painting is part of The Sakyong’s Kalapa Court, Canada.
