Cover Art & Artist

Padmasambhava is a legendary spiritual teacher for thousands of aspirants around the world. Born in present-day Pakistan, he brought the highest teachings of yoga and Buddhism to the sacred land of Tibet in the 8th century. Through the display of miraculous powers, he integrated the Shamanic practices of the Tibetan natives with his own mastery of Indian Buddhism, establishing Tibetan Buddhism.

Tibetan art is rich in symbolism, as it is an aid to the practice itself. Examples include the Blue Buddha with his consort (called "yab-yum" or "mother-father") and the ancient swastika pattern on his robe. Like the Chinese yin-yang, these represent the fundamental unity of opposites, i.e. our inherent nature.

Salem-born artist Jonathan Weber does not follow any particular religious tradition but finds inspiration in the fundamental truths of all spiritual paths.
