Wisdom of Tibet

about existence "Good news is that you are falling whithout a parachute and you cant catch anything on your way. But good news that earth does not exist also."

"You are sitting on the earth and you realize that this earth deserves you and you deserve this earth. You are there - fully, personally, genuinely."

Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
(February 28, 1939 – April 4, 1987) was a Buddhist meditation master and holder of both the Kagyu and Nyingma lineages, the eleventh Trungpa tülku, a tertön, supreme abbot of the Surmang monasteries, scholar, teacher, poet, artist, and originator of a radical re-presentation of Shambhala vision.

Trungpa's Crazy Wisdom

"Crazy wisdom is natural, effortless, not driven by the hope and fear machine of the ego."

Magic Sky

Rerih's painting

If you watch sky for a very-very-very long time you can feel yourself inside the sky, sky inside you. Infinity become a little dot inside you. You become a little dot inside infinity, like little shiny star. I love to watch stars and night sky. It is magnificent! If look very-very long time at sky you dissolve in infinity and time wont exist..

Leonardo Da Vinci said:

- A well-spent day brings happy sleep.

- All our knowledge has its origins in our perceptions.

- Art is never finished, only abandoned.

- As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.

- As every divided kingdom falls, so evry mind divided between many studies confounds and

saps itself.

- Blinding ignorance does mislead us. O! Wretched mortals, open your eyes!

- For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.

- He who wished to be rich in a day will be hanged in a year.

- I have been impressed with urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough - we must apply. Being

willing is not enough - we must do!

- I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strenght from distress, and grow brave

by reflection.

- It's easier to resist at the beginning than at the end.

- Learning never exhausts the mind.

- Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works.

If it works big, other quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing

something else.

- Marriage is like putting your hand into a bag of snakes in the hope of pulling out an eel.

- Our life is made by death of others.

- Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

- The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.

- There are three classes of people: those who see, those who see when they are shown, those

who do not see.

- Where the spirit does not work with the hand, ther is no art.

- While I thought that I was learning how to live, I have been learning how to die.

New Persian Art work (illumination)

My art:

Persian Miniature

A Persian miniature is a small painting, whether a book illustration or a separate work of art intended to be kept in an album of such works. The techniques are broadly comparable to the Western and Byzantine traditions of miniatures in illuminated manuscripts. Although there is an equally well-established Persian tradition of wall-painting, the survival rate and state of preservation of miniatures is better, and miniatures are much the best-known form of Persian painting in the West. Miniature painting became a significant Persian form in the 13th century, and the highest point in the tradition was reached in the 15th and 16th centuries. The tradition continued, under some Western influence, after this, and has many modern exponents. The Persian miniature was the dominant influence on other Islamic miniature traditions, principally the Ottoman miniature in Turkey, and the Mughal miniature in the Indian sub-continent.

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Though at various stages it has been affected by Chinese and Eastern influences, Persian miniature art has developed its own distinctive features. Whether it's being displayed in museums, casino hotels, or in private collections, Persian art has its own distinct features. For instance, Iran's miniature artists are recognizable for their emphasis on natural and realist motifs. Also worth noting is the Persian technique of "layering" perspectives to create a sense of space. For example, in the miniature piece at right, the variety of views is noticeable in the arrangement of objects: birds inhabit both the foreground and background of the piece, with the floral objects positioned in between. This gives the viewer a sense of threedimensional space and the ability to focus on certain aspects of the piece to the exclusion of others. Content and form are fundamental elements of Persian miniature painting, and miniature artists are renowned for their modest, subtle use of color.
