Genuine art has the power to awaken and liberate. The renowned meditation master and artist Ch_gyam Trungpa called this type of art ‚Äö√Ñ‚àû‚àö√µ‚àö√®dharma art‚Äö√Ñ‚àû_‚Äö√Ñ‚àû‚àö√µ‚àö√¨any creative work that springs from an awakened state of mind, characterized by directness, unselfconsciousness, and nonaggression. Dharma art provides a vehicle to appreciate the nature of things as they are and express it without any struggle or desire to achieve. A work of dharma art brings out the goodness and dignity of the situation it reflects‚Äö√Ñ‚àû‚àö√µ‚àö√¨dignity that comes from the artist‚Äö√Ñ‚àû_s interest in the details of life and sense of appreciation for experience. Trungpa shows how the principles of dharma art extend to everyday life: any activity can provide an opportunity to relax and open our senses to the phenomenal world.
An expanded edition of Trungpa’s Dharma Art (1996), this book includes a new introduction and essay.
