The Meditation Chair

Part of getting well for me was getting centered. And a practice of meditation really helps that happen. I have found that meditation is often talked about, but seems mysterious. So a chair and a mantra might help to demystify. The Tibetan prayer flags inspired the painting. “Om Mane Padme Hum” can’t be translated, but “behold the Jewel of the Lotus” describes the intent. It is the most widely used of all Buddhist mantras it is open to anyone who feels inspired to practice it. Each syllable helps to purify the mind.
