[OceanofDharma] Quotes of the Week: Dharma Art

Ocean of Dharma Quotes of the Week

September 23, 2008


The basic sense of delight and spontaneity in a person who has opened fully and thoroughly to him or herself and  to life can provide wonderful rainbows and thundershowers and gusts of wind. We don't have to be tied down to the greasy-spoon world of well-meaning artists with their heavy-handed looks on their faces and overfed information in their brains. The basic idea of dharma art is the sense of peace and  the refreshing coolness of the absence of neurosis.

OF INTEREST TO READERS: A new edition of DHARMA ART, containing additional material and a new introduction and preface, will be published by Shambhala Publications in November 2008. The book will appear under a new title: TRUE PERCEPTION: THE PATH OF DHARMA ART. To preorder your copy at a 20% discount, go to:
