TEMPLE CEILING MANDALA PROJECT

The three-story, 12,000 sq. ft. Tara Temple was built between 2007 and 2009 using the skills of traditional Bhutanese wood carvers and Tibetan artists. Lama Gyurme Rabgye was the visual artist and painter of the entire temple and worked closely with David Petit and Lama Tsultrim Allione to create one of the most exquisite representations of Vajrayana Buddhist cosmology in the world. His work is featured throughout the inside and outside of the temple, with unique imagery on each of the four entrance facades.

In 2017, Lama Tsultrim and Tara Mandala commissioned Lama Gyurme to paint twenty-nine individual mandalas that will cover the ceiling of the shrine room (Nirmanakaya). Each mandala is unique with exquisite detail and profound significance that can trigger ‘liberation through seeing’.

The choice of these particular mandalas was made with Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche‘s guidance. These mandalas were in the original plans for the temple. Lama Tsultrim is very excited to start this next phase of making the temple truly a ‘liberation through seeing’ experience. Please see below for a design of the entire ceiling and close-ups of each mandala.

Each mandala will be painted by hand on canvas and then installed on the temple ceiling. The mandala’s range in their complexity and can take between a few weeks and a few months to complete leading to the different sponsorship amounts for each.

We welcome your sponsorship and dedication. Feel free to make dedications to a special individual, a cause or an aspiration near to your heart. You will receive a color image of the mandala you are sponsoring when completed as well as have your name and dedication listed in the temple.
