Dear blog friends,

I have extracted all the write ups, information, pictures, paintings from Mr. Ori Carino’s website. I did this is because I would like more people to know of this wonderful 29 year old visionary artist in New York City.

His paintings of Lord Tsongkapa are my favorite in the world now. Contemporary Buddhist paintings holds the greatest fascination for me. I wish so many more would engage in this form of art. I wish I had the time to master this type of art.

I wish to get a set to frame for my room and gift to others. I like this style of painting so much. Something ancient and contemporary all in one. Beautiful, inspiring, visionary, creative, holy, detailed, accurate, modern, ancient and illuminating are words that comes to my mind when I see his style of painting Lord Tsongkapa.

Thank you Mr. Carino for your talent, your work, dedication and passion. I really enjoy people with passion, drive and goals. I have decided to align myself with people who have passion starting from yesterday… it was a personal decision after much personal introspection after many years of being with people who lived to just exist but did not exist to live for anything… You are a artist of global quality. May you be happy, live long and arise from all that obscures…

This scene depicts a lady dressed in red always visiting Lord Tsongkapa’s retreat abode… Lord Tsongkapa just completed the text and this lady visited again. As Lord Tsongkapa watches this lady starts transforming into Vajra Yogini into who She really was. Her transformation started with Her left hand turning red!

Ori G. Carino was born in a Houston Street loft in downtown Manhattan, NYC (1982). He was raised within the Lower East Side art-movement of the 80’s, living in a functioning gallery on Houston street until he was seven. When he was five he painted with Keith Herring, which lead him to start writing Graffiti.  At age 13 Carino’s street art brought him to attend programs at Parson’s and Cooper Union before being offered a scholarship to attend the studio program for painting and installation at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA) in Boston. During this time Carino became a respected muralist and painted numerous public and private murals, along with commissioned paintings and garments. He received the prestigious NYC Studio program grant award along with two special grants from the office of the Dean (SMFA). After graduating in 2005 he relocated to New York City from where he currently works and lives. He has exhibited in group shows in NYC, Boston, West Palm Beach, Miami, Dallas, San Francisco, Amsterdam Holland and Paris France. His work is in private collections in the US, Europe and Asia.

 

INTRODUCING THE KING OF THE DHARMA TO THE WORLD

March  10, 1959. Artillery shells are smashing into the Potala Palace. You  need to run, and you have perhaps ten minutes to decide what to take  with you, over the Himalayas, down into India.

What the family of His Holiness the Dalai Lama  decided to take was a set of 15 scroll paintings called the Tsongkapa  Eighty. In more than 200 intricate scenes, these paintings relate the  life story of a person that we believe will become just as important to  the world as Jesus or Moses or Mohammed.

The  paintings did reach India, and were donated by His Holiness and his  family to the Kalmyk Buddhist Temple in New Jersey, USA, since at the  time this was one of the only Tibetan Buddhist centers outside of Tibet.

We’ve spent more than 15 years researching the  paintings. We recovered the ancient manuscript by Jamyang Shepay Dorje  (1648- 1721) which first described how the scenes should be painted, and  translated it in full, comparing it with more than 50 other ancient  biographies and texts (a copy with notes is shown at right). We located,  in the Tsar’s library in St Petersburg, Russia, the original text of  the Tsongkapa Eighty—which was written in the weeks following Je  Tsongkapa’s passing from this world by his disciple Jamyang Kache (in  1419). We’ve translated and refined all the captions by comparing, with  the cooperation of these institutions, later sets of the paintings held  by Sera Monastery and the Istituto Lama Tzong Khapa of the FPMT.


We’ve  researched and written an extensive history of how the paintings  developed over the centuries, using dozens of ancient Tibetan sources,  including a history of the Kalmyk Temple and how the paintings arrived  there—through eyewitness accounts and interviews with people like  Professor Thubten Jigme Norbu, the older brother of His Holiness. We’ve  sent a team of photographers to retrace Je Tsongkapa’s steps across  Tibet, and produce a pictography of places dear to his heart: Olka,  where he did his long retreat; Radreng, where he had the vision to write  the Lamrim Chenmo(The Great Book on the Steps of the Path), and many  other holy sites. Some photos, like the famous one of the Potala at  left, we’ve licensed from other photographers.

We’ve compiled a definitive list of all of Je  Tsongkapa’s writings, and all the major biographies of his life, even  those which have gone missing over the centuries. We’ve carefully  divided out all the 200 scenes, corrected and translated the captions,  and created a definitive account of each year of his life, in text and  pictures.

Maps, produced with the help of the map maker  for the Lord of the Rings books, portray the Master’s constant travels  to teach and to learn.

An  extraordinary young artist from New York, Ori Carin, has added modern  interpretations of several of the scenes. These will strike you as  nothing less than classics of a 21st-century Rembrandt; here, Manjushri  pierces Je Rinpoche’s heart with his sword of wisdom, at a place called  Gyasokpu, in the winter of 1393.

But perhaps most importantly we have divided out  some 30 different roles that Je Tsongkapa played during his life: the  monk, the philosopher, and the writer, certainly; but also the  meditator, dancer, yoga practitioner, poet, spiritual partner and  diplomat, all depicted in the paintings.

We feel that this is the most important part of  the book. It is not just a record of the life of a Lama far beyond us  all; rather, it is a life that was lived as an example for each of us:  as the Tibetans would say, a play that was performed by Manjushri  himself, posing as a human, to show each of us the lam-rim: all the  steps we need to take to reach enlightenment ourselves.

This book has been a life’s work in the making.  We have designed it as a coffee-table sized art book, overflowing on  every page with the color of the paintings.

The book runs some 250 pages, and we have spared  no expense in preparing it. We have tried to create a true classic which  will remain in the world for many generations, as a record of what we  believe is one of the most important lives ever lived on this planet, in  its entire history. We truly foresee a time in the world where the  founder of the lineage of the Dalai Lamas takes his place among the  greatest spiritual leaders of all of history, and we want to introduce  him to the world in a way that is worthy of the splendor of his life.

 

Statement by Ori Carino

I work with techniques, compositional elements and aesthetic styles from classical Tibetan and European art. I juxtapose Tibetan art’s unique synthesis of the pantheon of decorative painting and textile techniques of the east, including refined and sophisticated brush stroke technique, with western methods like perspective, foreshortening, and rendering.  I additionally use an airbrush, as a mini spray-paint can at times and for applying a glaze at others – going back and forth between gesture and wash and between classical and contemporary.  In the end, it’s smooth glazes, opulent and elaborate surfaces, embossed gold, and rich color, all to reveal the horror, comedy, sex and drama unfolding as a divine play.

 


 Divine Buddha Vajra Yogini painted by Ori Carino

 

 

 Yamantaka by Ori Carino

 

The most important relationship in our lives is with our teacher. The proper constant respect and holding our promises are very important. Here Tsongkapa (right) meets his guru but sees his guru as Vajrapani the Lord of Secrets. Not as an ordinary being. Where Tsongkapa himself is Lord Manjushri. You see their true nature behind them… beautiful.

 

 

Tsongkapa’s mother has a dream she is in a long line of women in a happy green mountain abode. A divine lady and youth goes to each of the women. The youth asks the divine lady, is this the right one? Is this one right? When they come across the right woman, then the Divine Lady says yes. The divine lady and youth then bathe the woman, adorns her with ornaments, and puts on fresh clothing.. .preparing her for Lord Tsongkapa to enter her divine womb…

 

Here Lord Tsongkapa has for the first time a vision of Arya Manjushri. Manjushri extends his sword out touching Tsongakap’s heart and blessing him… some of the students around Tsongkapa also has full or partial vision of Arya Manjushri…

    I was led to read this article after Wei Theng have posted it in her FB and I thank her for this!

    Really really very nice painting that captured the essence of the teachings well. It’s like looking at the pic and you’ll be reminded of the majestic and life story of Lama Tsongkhapa. I love all the paintings but particularly drawn to the pic depicting meeting with the Guru. If given the magical touch, I would draw their eyes looking forward or down especially for Lama Tsongkhapa because as I know we have to always show utmost respect to our Guru and when meeting our Guru, we should be somehow shy, bashful or even when we laugh or smile, we try to cover our mouth and gazing up, looking at our Guru occasionally only. Hehehe..

    However, I don’t this is practical for the general because looking into people’s eyes denote respect and listening attentively.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    Amazing painting by Mr Ori Corino. He put the meaning and message so well on the painting and this cannot be possibly done if he doesn’t have the faith and right understanding about Tibetan Buddhism and Lama Tsongkhapa. Just fascinating to listen to his explanation and combination of various ancient and modern artwork to produce his painting. It would be really great to have more painting of such beautiful and creative art piece.

  3. Stella Cheang on Mar 1, 2018 at 10:27 am

    It is truly fascinating to see the spiritual artwork from the young Mr. Ori Carino, who successfully depicted expression and intricacy of Buddhist Saints and Deities in such richness of details. It must be something he is born to accomplish. The picture of Lama Tsongkhapa’s first vision of Manjushri is sensational as it clearly depicts a ray of clear blue light that connects Manjushri with Lama Tsongkhapa. Thank you for this sharing.

  4. Samfoonheei on Jun 17, 2017 at 3:31 pm

    Amazing……..talented artist Ori Carino,born with a golden hand to paint beautiful Dharma painting.His paintings so beautiful,lively and there’s story behind each paintings.
    He was a young artist,born in New York yet he can paints so well of Tibetan Bhuddist art which included modern interpretations of several of the scenes of greatest spiritual leader like the painting ofLord Tsongkapa has for the first time a vision of Arya Manjushri and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing Ori Carino’s beautiful paintings.

  5. sandra on Mar 12, 2015 at 9:43 pm

    wow just wow. i wish i had perfect visualisations like in these paintings for my prayer.

  6. Sean Wang on Feb 28, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    These paintings really took my breath away. They are amazingly beautiful. When Mr. Ori paints about Lama Tsongkhapa, you can feel his passion emanating from the painting. Also, I feel that I am whisked away to the time of Lama Tsongkhapa and the paintings make me feel as if I was really there.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing these amazing paintings.

  7. Paris on Jan 21, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    it’s beautiful to see a young person expressing his devotion through a personal talent – the beautiful medium of art. It is taught that producing / sponsoring Buddhist images creates a tremendous amount of merit, for it makes images available for people to contemplate on, be inspired by for their practice and perhaps even to gain attainments from. From the part of Ori, his paintings also represent a beautiful offering from him to the Buddhas – every paint stroke, the time, the effort and the thought that goes into beautifying each piece becomes an offering. How wonderful!

    We’re fortunate that Rinpoche has created so many avenues for us to engage in this same kind of offering and practice. The different departments manifest into opportunities for us to be like Ori – to paint, to write, to film and produce videos, to do charitable works. They may not seem like traditional methods of formal practice, but the end result is the same – that we aspire to bring the blessings of the three jewels to others and fortify our own practice and faith through these methods.

  8. Frederick Law on Jul 23, 2012 at 2:33 am

    the painting is just beautiful, it is art, and each of the painting is very lively. Using an air brush to paint is not easy, but Ori Carino paint it with passion and whole heartedly with the Dharma in him, and the result is just magnificent.

    I like the Lady in Red, and Tsongkapha meeting his Guru. amazing detail.

    Thank You Rinpoche for this post.

  9. Julia Tan on Jul 4, 2012 at 3:57 am

    The paintings are beautiful. Mr. Ori Carino, has such a talent to paint the modern Tangkha. All these painting will be very helpful for us when we do our meditation and visualization. I like the painting that has Vajrayogini appear in front of Lord Tsongkhapa. A very warm hearted and beautiful picture showed that Tsongkhapa actually see his guru as Vajrapani and the guru sees Tsongkhapa as Munjushri.

  10. JP on Jun 18, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    Mr Ori Carino’s work reminds me of Salvador Dali. It’s surrealism using Tibetan Buddhist subjects. This is one of Dali’s famous piece: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/dd/The_Persistence_of_Memory.jpg

    It’d be great if Mr Carino has an exhibition of these paintings. People can indirectly learn about Lama Tsongkhapa through the arts.

  11. Li Kheng on May 28, 2012 at 2:07 pm

    The images are very beautiful. It is so kind and skilful of Ori Carino to make the sight of Vajrayogini visible to so many more people through the platform of art and culture. These art pieces will not only be beautiful but will plant many Dharma seeds to create the cause for many viewers to receive Her practice in the future.

    The practice of Vajrayogini is most precious as it will be our most useful “tool” at our time of death. As Buddhists, besides benefiting other, we practice so that we get ready to face a controlled death and rebirth. Thus, we must also note the deeper value of these creations.

    Thank you Rinpoche for once again crating the condition where our sense pleasures is directed on pure Dharma.

  12. Albert on May 20, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    When people out there who are chasing after material wealth, fame, position, power, etc. Ori at the age of 29 chosen a different path, it is very inspirational for him to have such vision, creating such beautiful and beneficial artwork,

    p.s. I love the picture of Lady in red visiting Lord Tsongkhapa too, and I love all his painting, it is so beautiful.

  13. Junior on May 20, 2012 at 7:51 pm

    They look like they are alive and very creative and innovative.So amazing Tibetan Buddhist art.

  14. James Long on May 19, 2012 at 8:34 pm

    He use modern painting technique to paint all these beautiful Thangks, I like it very much. Was explaining to people who came into outlet how long and “difficult” to find a Thangka painter who not just paint but combine the practice and meditation with their painting. By looking at these painting is a great blessing, as it is not just color, stroke etc etc… Is the meaning, planing and the concept which the painter took a lot of time to think.

    I like the painting which the lady transforming into Vajrayogini, very creative, subtle but real.

  15. Erickksiow on May 19, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    Mr Ori Carino is a very good artist, his artworks so much creative. The amazing part is, his using Airbrush to paint the Thangkas. Love this Thangka : Tsongkapa (right) meets his guru but sees his guru as Vajrapani the Lord of Secrets. Not as an ordinary being. Where Tsongkapa himself is Lord Manjushri. You see their true nature behind them…

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this to us.

    Best Regards : Erickksiow

  16. mayy on May 19, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    Love the paintings alot! So well done! I took liking to his way of painting, a way we never would think of have brought life to them. I wish I could paint like him. I like the paintings very much especially where Manjushri extends his sword out touching Tsongakap’s heart and blessing him and Vajrayogini.

  17. Davin on May 19, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    Wow.. The painting is so beautiful. I like it very much. Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.

  18. mitra on May 19, 2012 at 11:01 am

    very clear painting like a real.he is moden painter.

  19. Darren on May 18, 2012 at 7:01 pm

    Thank you Mr. Ori Carino for the wonderful paintings of Tsongkhapa. It was an eye opening for me to see these beautiful art work of Tsongkhapa. Maybe the artwork will give everyone a good imprints in their mind to be able to meet Dharma.

  20. Tenzin Kyabsum on May 18, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    Really beautiful and life-like paintings! I can’t believe they were airbrushed. So talented he is. Maybe he was a Thangkha painter in his previous life?

    I like the way he explains his paintings. Very profound and I can feel his passion for Dharma and painting from the way he speaks. Really interesting!

    Thank you Rinpoche and Cody for sharing!

  21. tenzin llhamo on May 18, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    His paintings are really one of a kind. At 1st glance, I thought, I thought they were hand painted like the thangkas but as I watched the video, I was amazed to know that he actually used airbrush! His style of the paintings are so original as they are based on true events and not something that he made up.
    How he depict the story with his own visualization is really nice!

  22. Girlie on May 18, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    Mr Carino brings to life in his paintings the various stages in Je Tsongkhapa’s life. Beautiful pieces of art passionately transformed and depicted on canvas with his own style.

  23. henry ooi on May 18, 2012 at 11:54 am

    Never mind if I understand the art of painting but the results shown by Ori Carino attracted and are appreciated by many people. Not only is Ori a gifted artist but he has knowledge of what he was painting. Each piece is beautifully and lovingly painted the modern way. Thank you, Ori, for expressing dharma in art and sharing with the world.

  24. abby F on May 17, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    OMB, the paintings are all so nice!
    This must be imprints from the past life.. I love the Vajrayogini’s painting the most! 🙂

  25. Pastor Chia on May 16, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    All the thangka painting from Mr.Ori Carino are so stunning. Tibetan art painting from tradition thangka drawing to the modern art painting yet still carry the authenticity of Vajrayana Buddhism essence.
    Good new to share is, Mr. Ori Carino also student of Kensur Lobsang Tharchin same as Tsem Tulku Rinpoche first guru at New Jersey. Rejoice all the good news. I hope one day Mr. Ori Carino come to visit Malaysia.

  26. Joy on May 16, 2012 at 3:15 pm

    I really really wish I can paint like Ori. Truly is truly amazing and inspiring work of divine art. I love every single, especially the Tsongkhapa meeting the lady in red one. So mystical, divine and it is as though you have been transported in to that particular time and you are there watching the whole scene!

    They say a painting captures the mood and emotions of the artist… well Ori has definitely shown his passion and feelings through these sacred depictions. That is why it is so very alive!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this. Thank you Ori for these awe inspiring work of art that allows us to have/experience a glimpse of what it could have been when Lord Tsongkhapa was doing what He was doing.

    Pure divine beauty captured and brought to life…

  27. Siong Woan on May 16, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    Love the paintings, he must have spent hours on each paintings. His care and passion on the deities depicted in each piece of his work. Mr Carino should start teaching and sharing his skills so they are not lost.

  28. jennifer on May 15, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    I love every of Mr Ori’s paintings. The colours are so beautiful and vivid. It’s amazing that Mr Ori is so young yet so talented and he had depicted his spirituality in his every stroke of his brush.

  29. Jeffrey Yee on May 15, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Mr Carino really stands out from other street artists with his remarkable paintings of Lama Tsongkhapa. The most amazing part about them is that they are created from stories of Tsongkhapa, passed down from generations after generations. They are definitely worth to be kept in a museum to educate future generations about Buddhism and the Gelugpa Lineage.

  30. ericchoong on May 15, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    看了Mr Ori 的画,我从来没有想像到佛画是可以这样画的。。。太有创意又不失传统。

    画笔惊艳,颜色非常丰盛美丽,画中有故事。。。引人思考。

    想像的到他对宗格巴大师的喜爱有多大。尤其,我最喜欢的一幅佳作是一位女子尤如金刚瑜伽母身穿旗袍与宗柏巴大师的作品,使我惊讶!

    看了这些画作,我真的得到一些在服装创作的灵感。。。谢谢仁波切的分享。增加了我在创作上的一些指示,希望有一天Mr Ori 能到马耒西亚开画展,把宗格巴大师发扬光大。

    向世人展示佛法的艺术,佛法的新世界。

  31. Helena on May 15, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    Oh yes..I really love the story behind every paintings that he explained especially “THE special MOMENT”.

  32. Helena on May 15, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    Thank you for sharing Rinpoche, after i have watched the video, its really an eye opener for me. I feel like screaming!!! Mr. Ori Carino is AMAZING!!! I love all his work and the one I love most is Vajrayogini visits Lord Tsongkhapa. especially when Mr.Ori explained on the painting. Very very beautiful.

  33. Wan on May 15, 2012 at 2:09 am

    Wow!!! i like these beautiful paintings of Lama Tsongkhapa.

    It’s unique and there are story/meaning for each painting. I not only rejoice and happy with the beautiful painting but also learn about quality of Lama Tsongkhapa and what he has acheived according to each painting as the same time..

  34. Adeline on May 15, 2012 at 12:49 am

    I looked and looked again many times at Mr Ori Carino paintings they are so beautiful and real, i really liked the Lady wearing red (like a cheerful VY to me) came to visit Tsongkapa.

  35. So Kin Hoe on May 14, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    Mr. Ori Carino’s paintings of Lord Tsongkhapa really amaze me. I have never expected to see such colorful paintings with the stories of Lord Tsongkhapa.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this amazing artworks from Mr. Ori Carino. I love the paintings very much and hop

  36. Louise Lee on May 14, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    When i read this , i see Rinpoche ! Coz Rinpoche work really hard to teach us dharma in modern way , suit US & the way we can easily to put in everyday . Because easy for us to digest. We make our Lama in very difficult, with only reason !! BECAUSE WE”RE SO LAZY AND FULL WITH EGO !!

    Same like MR Ori Carino, he work very hard to put the modern technology in the Thangka! He make it very high tech & modern ! Event he use his talent to paint Lama Tsongkhapa story board! He is so great !!

    Dear Mr Ori Carino , Keep It Up !! Continue to support your painting work in Dharma !

    Thank you

  37. Adrian Cho on May 14, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    Paintings of Mr Ori Carino is really amazing and he is so talent..
    I can see those picture in every paintings are so in details..
    Especially the paintings of Tsongkhapa meet his Guru with 2 deity of Manjushri and Vajrapani. It was so beautiful and looks so real.
    I like it so much.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing to us.

  38. Datuk May on May 14, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    Beautiful Paintings, modernism into and ancient tradition of the Second Buddha.

    I really like those paintings especially the one with the lady in red. A picture truly tells a thousand words.

  39. Victor Phang on May 14, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    Very beautiful visualization. They are definitely beyond just like an art piece. Mr. Ori Carino “translate” the powerful visualization into holy drawings. So clear, so real, so lively.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these beautiful pictures.
    Take good care
    With love,
    VP

  40. David Lai on May 14, 2012 at 11:48 am

    The artwork of Ori Carino is fantastic. I love every one of his pictures and particularly, I like the one when he meet his Guru and sees him as Vajrapani, while his Guru sees him as Manjushri. This is just lovely artwork. He is just amazingly talented and it is really neat that he is putting his talent to good use. It is rare here in Malaysia to see people with artistic talent and going all the way with it.

  41. Jace Chong on May 13, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing, the paintings are very very nice and I like the video too.

    The lineage and stories of Lama Tsongkhapa are so well restored, every story is touching as it’s real from a human experience, it’s not something made up.

    That’s something I can relate to. Enlightenment is not something in the air and it could be achieved with Buddhist paths. Shakyamurni and Tsongkhapa physically appeared to the world to show that it’s possible and tell us the way.

    I hope the lineage can continue to next next next and next generations to benefits more sentient beings! _/|\_

  42. Jean Mei on May 13, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    Even though within Ori’s paintings some images are skewed between 2D and 3D, the incredible details and highly realistic perspective in Ori Carino’s paintings makes it feel like you’ve had the fortunate opportunity to take a glimse into past history.

    Especially in the scene where a lady dressed in red visits Lord Tsongkhapa’s retreat abode, the details of the wall painting, the carpet, the glow above Je Tsongkhapa’s head, Vajrayogini’s dress, etc, is not overly done, but as much as our eye would capture.

    It’s the sort of details we would see in French Rennaisance paintings, and I’m really happy to see this artistic technique translated into depicting Lama Tsongkhapa’s life.

    What an incredible and refreshing artist.

    • DR on May 16, 2012 at 12:59 pm

      Isn’t Ori just so talented? He can express culture, tradition, religion and art all in one painting. So refreshing!

  43. patsy on May 13, 2012 at 12:04 am

    Mr. Ori Carino’s paintings are so amazing. He paints and describes his works with passion.I like the painting of Tsongkhapa who himself is Lord Manjushri meets his guru whom he sees not as an ordinary being but as Vajrapani the Lord of Secrets. Their body postures show how humble they are of each other.

    All these contemporary paintings using airbrush are so captivating and beautiful; they look so alive. Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing.

  44. william on May 12, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Amazing interpretation of Tibetan Buddhist art into contemporary paintings. You can see that Ori talks with passion on his artwork and that his depiction has to be accurate and not like before where he has no reference.

    I like it that he says that we just need to look into the mirror to see that it is real because his art is based on human forms. That’s what so special about it. Talented artist, we need more people like him

  45. Terri on May 12, 2012 at 2:09 pm

    pretty and very creative.

    很有才华的一位畫家。他的畫作顏色非常美丽,人物生動,作品要表达的内容也很特别。

  47. Chandra on May 12, 2012 at 5:41 am

    The paintings are so alive and breathtakingly beautiful. It’s almost real yet surreal. How fortunate the gentleman is to have connection with Je Rinpoche!

  48. Don Buchwalter on May 12, 2012 at 4:00 am

    Wonderful! These paintings combine the best of tradition and “newness” , and they really are fantastic to contemplate upon.

    Here’s hoping that we see many more glorious works of art by Mr. Ori, and others who feel inspired by him!

    • Don Buchwalter on May 12, 2012 at 4:01 am

      Pardon me, but I meant Mr. Carino.

  49. Koh Hee Peng on May 12, 2012 at 1:24 am

    The pictures are very beautiful. The combination of bright, radiant, vibrant and gayish colour makes the pictures look so real, that by looking at the pictures it is as though we were there witnessing the auspicious event took place right in front of our eyes. Very inspiring indeed.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Cody for sharing 😀

  50. Paul Yap on May 12, 2012 at 12:02 am

    wow! These paintings are so alive and beautiful, I’m sure lots of people will be inspired, good job!

  51. Valentina Suhendra on May 11, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Dear Lama

    Thank you for sharing these pictures! I have been looking for books on Tibetan Buddhist iconography in bookstores with little luck (have tried in Jakarta and Malaysia). Will look in Singapore next month.

    I really love the paintings you blog above!

    Valentina

  52. Irene Lim on May 11, 2012 at 10:08 pm

    Ori Carino’s painting is so captivating and vivid. His paintings transcend new dimension in tradition art, so expressively divine!

  53. hecelus tan on May 11, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    His paintings really beautiful espacially Manjushri is nice.

  54. Thierry on May 11, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    Wonderful to see these modern takes at holy scenes.
    Wonderful to hear Mr. Ori speak with knowledge and passion about the Great Lama Tsongkhapa.
    It would be wonderful to see more of Mr. Ori’s work because they are not just paintings, there are teachings, they are biographical scenes that also are teachings.

  55. Lai on May 11, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    Like the picture of Tsongkapa meets his guru, and i wonder, is it what they really see in real life!?
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this!

  56. MayOng on May 11, 2012 at 4:46 pm

    All of these paintings by Ori Carino are beautiful. I love the way he drew with fine strokes, how each individual painting reflects the expression of the subject and how it is related to respective stories. Carino was wearing a mala over his neck and I think he drew these beautiful paintings with passion for dharma

  57. Elena on May 11, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    More than the paintings (which are very beautiful! I love that glow around Vajrayogini), what impresses me the most about the video is how much passion Mr Carino speaks with. I don’t pretend to ‘get’ art but when he talks about his paintings and describes what he envisions, and what his paintings represent, then it really comes to life…his descriptions are as beautiful as his paintings!

  58. KH Ng on May 11, 2012 at 3:55 pm

    I am not an artist but when see these paintings the impression is that it is so contemporary. So modern but yet captured the essence of the deities, the subject and the story it is telling so well. The colors are so vibrant and pleasing to the eyes. Like high definition remake versions of the Thangkas.

  59. sweekeong on May 11, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    Wow.. His paintings are very realistic. They also done a lot of background research to present an accurate picture of the story to tell.

  60. Joe Ang on May 11, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    The paintings by Mr. Ori are mesmerizing. i like the one which Tsongkapa meets his guru but sees his guru as Vajrapani the Lord of Secrets and Tsongkapa himself is Lord Manjushri. 😀

  61. pastor ngeow on May 11, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    Wow !3D is coming to holy paintings ! I believe its going to help our visualization of deities much easier. I am deeply touched by the actions of our lineage masters/gurus who sacrificed everything to protect such treasures so that we can now access them and be blessed by them. Ori’s work will benefit many through this medium of expression and his interpretation of enlightened activity of the 2nd Buddha.

  62. lewkwanleng on May 11, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    Wow! He is good in airbrush is one thing, but his insistance of accuracy of the painting is what really inspire me.

    Many of the people in Tibet can’t read and they rely on paintings and statues for the correct teachings and meditation practices. Therefore, accuracy of information is a must.

    I rejoice for Ori Carino for using his talent to spread the King of Dharma – Lama Tsongkapa.

  63. Wan Wai Meng on May 11, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    A painting like this can tell a story, this is amazing, not only are the pictures beautiful but stories about the greatness of Lama Tsongkhapa told in this manner can benefit people who might not like to connect Tsongkhapa through something like text or articles. But what appeals to them is ART!. The King of Dharma should be well known all over the universe 🙂

  64. Lim KSJC on May 11, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing, Mr Ori Carino style and technique in his painting are awesome. It is very creative and innovative, the painting make us feel interesting to take a look not just once so can make us easier to memorize and visualize.

    Divine Buddha Vajra Yogini and Tamantaka painted by Ori Carino is so real with fantastic work, i like the paint of Tsongkapa (right) meets his guru (sees his guru as Vajrapani the Lord of Secrets. Not as an ordinary being. Where Tsongkapa himself is Lord Manjushri)…

  65. Cody MBF on May 11, 2012 at 10:27 am

    i am happy to share and really captivated by the way he paints.
    Hmm..It may be a good theme for a art competition to spread tsongkapha teachings in singapore… through story telling in paintings…

    • tsemtulku on May 11, 2012 at 12:48 pm

      I wish so much we had people in Singapore and Malaysia who will paint in this style so much!! Tsem Rinpoche

      • cod MBF singapore on May 12, 2012 at 11:26 pm

        I believe it will manifest soon. We will work on it.

  66. Han on May 11, 2012 at 10:04 am

    Paintings of Mr Ori Carino are amazing, every painting represent special moment and Its so in depth, I love the interview clip, he said if there is shift of perception, will obtain remarkable highest possible teachings , and this make the practice true for us.
    The paintings are very authentic and full of passion too !

    Thank you Rinpoche for the post.

  67. Su an on May 11, 2012 at 9:47 am

    Wow, these paintings are very mesmerizing! They look like they are alive. Mr ORi Carino is spreading Lama Tsongkhapa via art. Its mind boggling to know that HH Dalai Lama decided to take the Tsongkhapa Eighty scrolls, out of all things, when he was fleeing for his life! Because of that, we can enjoy and admire these beautiful paintings today. And Mr Ori’s team spent a lot of effort to ensure that what they give to the world is correct and true and beautiful. So touching and amazing. I like the painting of Lama Tsongkhapa meeting His Guru with their true nature right behind them, and their body postures showing how humble and respectful they are of each other. Thank you Rinpoche and Cody for sharing.

  68. JImmy Tan on May 11, 2012 at 9:14 am

    this was a real eye opener for me . it just surprise me that thangka painting can be so modern and meaningful . that was awesome.i will share this into my facebook so more people will benefit and get bless.

  69. Yoke Fui on May 11, 2012 at 7:38 am

    Mr Ori Carino used Western style and modern technique in his painting on the life story of Lord Tsongkhapa is amazing !

    I especially like the picture of Lady Vajrayogini’s visit to Lord Tsongkhapa.

    Carino puts creativity into spirituality and vice versa.

    • tsemtulku on May 11, 2012 at 8:07 am

      I love the part where the lady wearing read visiting Tsongkapa starts to reveal who she really is!!!!! So exciting…That never happens to me!!!

      • bengkooi on May 11, 2012 at 5:43 pm

        I like that part very much as well, especially how the painting looks like a normal lady visiting a monk but when you look closer, Vajrayogini’s hand is emerging. I also love Mr Carino’s painting of Vajrayogini. She looks so alive and real, and somewhat like I imagine her to be, glowing in the darkness. Beautiful 🙂

  70. Jay Jae on May 11, 2012 at 7:18 am

    When I first set my eyes on these paintings I just ran short of a dozen heartbeats! These modern depictions of Je Lama is just so neat! A meeting of two worlds, both from old Tibet and Italian Renaissance have merged into a piece of what I would call mastery of the arts.

    What’s more intriguing in Mr. Ori’s works is his passion for Je Tsongkhapa. When you see him describe the stories of Tsongkhapa, you don’t just feel his passion, you can actually imagine how it was really like!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this! It’s heartwarming to know that there are so many people out there who are as passionate about Tsongkhapa as us!

    Wow! I quite embarrassed to admit it, but we’ve all done it, run headlong into a window or sliding glass door that we just didn’t see. People usually escape with only a bruised ego. but when birds smack into windows, the results can be deadly. Very interesting to read and know why Birds Hit Window and How we can help to prevent it.

    Through this article I found more, In fact, read on researchers captured that more then 800 million birds die in window collisions all over the world in a year and hoping to hear more awareness and searchers to find solutions to prevent and safeguard bird-window collisions .

    Thank you for sharing and teaching and glad to understand something new.

    Compassion and tolerance is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength. So, we have be tolerant to everyone no matter what happens. Tolerance os the only thing that will enable person belongings to different religion to live as a good neighbours and good friends.

    Treat people the way you want to be treated, talk to people the way you want to be talked to because respect is earned not given. At the same time, if people respect you, respect them back, if they don’t respect you, respect them back too, because they represent their ideology not yours. Thank you.

    This was actually quite similar to my mother as she always says not to cut nails on Friday and on night. Not only this, she also believes taking a group photo of three people may lead to a person in that group to left the group or die. At first, this actually doesn’t make any sense for me.

    As my mom keep on advising me about this, it happened to be one of my habits. This really sounds strange. But after reading this article, i think I’ve to overcome this illogical habits. Thank you for this article.

    Xiangshui (Perfume) Nunnery | 龙口南山香水庵

    Located in China’s Shandong Province, the Xiangshui (Perfume) Nunnery was originally built during the Ming Dynasty from 1621-1627 A.D. It was badly damaged towards the end of the Qing Dynasty at the beginning of the 1900s. The nunnery was rebuilt in 1999 as part of the Longkou Nanshan Scenic Area development project.

    Initially, it was called the Xiangshui (Water Burble) Nunnery (响水庵). It got its name from the sound of the steady burble of water flowing from the mouth of a carved dragon on a big stone wall that used to be next to the nunnery.

    May 26, we had the honour of being informed by a Kecharian member, James Won, that he’s inviting over some Sangha from Sri Lanka. Kecharians of course, were very happy about that and I advised to make good offerings to the Sangha to generate merits. Today due to some Dharma works in the city, many Kecharians were not here in Kechara Forest Retreat but those who were came to receive the monks.

    The four eminent monks arrived and were taken on a tour as they wanted to see our activities.

    Methar of Tengyeling Monastery

    A gruelsome read of the cruelty that exist within the holiest office in Tibet. Ministers of the Dalai Lama are very much into the power and money game, without any other authority to stop their heinous actions. A sad fact of the power wielded by the office of the Dalai Lama.

    The Trode Khangsar is an important chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden in Lhasa, Tibet. It was built by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama towards the end of the 17th Century. Dorje Shugden is an uncommon Dharma protector within Tibetan Buddhism, who is said to protect the Buddhist teachings in general and Nagarjuna’s Madhyamika (Middle Way) Philosophy as taught by Lama Tsongkhapa specifically. Lama Tsongkhapa was the founder of the great Gelug lineage. Dorje Shugden, in his previous incarnation as Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, was a great scholar, meditator, teacher and contemporary of His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama. After being murdered, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arose as Dorje Shugden in order to benefit countless sentient beings.

    Tibetan ‘government-in-exile’ known as the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) was called to session and Tenpa Yarphel, a notable Member of the Tibetan Parliament (MP) spoke up about the need for Tibetans to be united. Specifically, Tenpa Yarphel bravely addressed a very thorny issue that most Tibetan policy makers have sidestepped for over 20 years, and that is the Dorje Shugden unethical ban that, by now, everyone knows has been very damaging to the fragile Tibetan unity. It is really refreshing to see a Tibetan MP speaking confidently about the realities faced by the Tibetans in exile, with the intention of moving forward to a better future instead of being stuck in myriad divisive policies that have really harmed the Tibetan polity and harmony.

    Tenpa Yarphel is one of the heroes that will bring a different for Tibetan. More Tibetan like Tenpa Yarphel should participate and speak up. Tibetan need a change in their government and no longer to follow the old way as it’s proven it doesn’t work.

    “I suppose now what I’m interested in is Nirvana, the Buddhist heaven. I don’t know much about it, or really understand it enough to explain it. George knows more.

    Studying religion has made me try to improve relationships, not to be unpleasant. It’s not a conscious move to change my personality. Perhaps it is. I don’t know. I’m just trying to be how I want to be, and how I’d like others to be.

    Drugs probably helped the understanding of myself better, but not much. Not pot. That just used to be a harmless giggle.”

    Dorje Shugden – The Protector of Our Time

    The power of enlightened Dharma protectors comes from their enlightened nature, which is compassionate and wisdom-filled. On the deepest level, they represent our blissful awareness of emptiness in strong energetic forms – the best protection against obstacles. The Dharma protectors protect sincere spiritual practitioners who seek their higher selves, see the downfalls of materialism and other problems created by the human mind.

    I personally have experienced the powers of Dorje Shugden much to my amazement for each request I make even of the minute ask is fulfilled sometimes immediately within the day of asking or several days to weeks depending on my extend of my life request.

    His compassionate nature and swift powers are to be witnessed only by those who are willing to give the divine being a chance for him to connect with you and render help. Ask DS and you shall receive. I have!

    If one single person can make such an immense positive contribution,imagine how the world could change for the better if only its population derives inspiration from this one man’s effort regardless of race, colour, creed, or belief.

    Greed destroys, selflessness sustains both our existence and other living existence on this planet.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Find one of the most beautiful temples in the world in Nara, Japan. It is the 1,267 year old Todai-ji temple that houses a 15 meter Buddha Vairocana statue who is a cosmic and timeless Buddha. Emperor Shomu who sponsored this beautiful temple eventually abdicated and ordained as a Buddhist monk. Very interesting history and story. One of the places everyone should visit- https://bit.ly/2VgsHhK

Silver Manjusri figure from Ngemplak Semongan (Indonesia). Apparently during the Shailendra Dynasty, Mahayana Buddhism was very strong in Indonesia. This Dynasty promoted Mahayana Buddhism and Manjushri was a principal Buddha of worship.

This poor boy is being forced to leave his friend to be sold for slaughter. Children have a natural connection with animals, and they know it is wrong to hurt and kill them. Children lose this connection by being indoctrinated (brainwashed) by their parents/peers into believing animals are here to be exploited, killed, and eaten.- from Lucinda Smyth FB page

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
