Sponsor the Chakrasamvara Ceiling Mandala
The Mandala Ceiling project highlights 20 mandalas from a variety of tantric practices. These are all part of, The Ocean of Tantras, a collection of sixty-eight mandalas from a rare Jonang Tradition text called the Gyu De Gyatso (rgyud sde rgya mtsho). These images are from Choje at Dzamthang monastery. Each mandala that is sponsored will be approximately 2 meters wide. You can write a dedication for it that Rinpoche can pray for on Saka Dawa when we consecrate the space. Please write a message when you make the donation.
In the Chakrasamvara mandala, Chakrasamvara (Wheel of Great Bliss) stands with his consort Vajravarahi in the center of a palace of concentric levels with four gates. Rings of lotus petals and flames purify the enclosed space, and eight charnel grounds are arrayed around it, marked with a domed stupa, a tree, animals, and the dead. Because it demonstrates the limitations of cyclic existence clearly, connecting with the Chakrasamvara mandala as a projected display of the nature and causal structure of our universe can help us to swiftly reveal all ordinary accomplishments and the attainment of awakening.
