Art as Buddhist Practice—A Portrait of Tsunma Jamyang Donma

Art as Buddhist Practice—A Portrait of Tsunma Jamyang Donma

Sacred art is created in order to awaken our experience of the true reality. It should not remain unattended on a wall or shelf. We should interact with sacred art. Make offerings to sacred art. Pray and meditate in front of sacred art.
— Lama Dechen Yeshe Wangmo

Outside the temple at Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery in Himachal Pradesh, northern India, a resident Tibetan Buddhist nun gazes at the stained-glass, a hand-painted image of the female deity Tara adorning the temple wall. This image, which took over a year to create, arrived at the nunnery in a crate shipped thousands of miles—all the way from Toronto, in Canada.

This breathtakingly beautiful and detailed work of art originated in Yulokod Studios—the workshop of Tsunma Jamyang Donma, a Canadian Tibetan-Buddhist female monastic. Located in Cambridge, Ontario, this single-artist studio has produced more than 25 exquisite works of art, which adorn such diverse places as traditional Buddhist temples and nunneries in Asia and North America, personal shrines in the mountains of California, and Reiki practitioners’ offices in New York.
