Painting 5. Protection Mandala with A, Mantra, and Song of the Vajra
Calligraphy made at the beginning of the COVID 19 pandemic, a true and proper protection mandala that contains garlands of letters of many powerful mantras in its spirals.
From the silver A at the center of the Mandala, there is the Dorje Kotrab mantra (Vajra Armor), the black Manjushri mantra, the Tara mantra which protects from infectious diseases, the mantra of Tara Ritod Loma Jonma, and at the end the Simhamukha mantra with Guru Dragphur. The mantras are enclosed within the Dakini syllables Dza Hum Bam Ho and the Longsal symbols on both sides.
At the top the invocation "Chögyal Namkhai Norbu la namo", I pay homage to Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, appears in golden Umed letters.
The Song of the Vajra of the Dzogchen Community as transmitted by the Master is written on both sides of the work in different coloured Uchen characters.
