A Lotus for You, A Buddha To Be

Acrylic and Metal Leaf on canvas

This phrase, accompanied by a bow with palms together, is taught as a greeting by Buddhist Monk, activist, writer, and teacher Thich Nhat Hahn. Ven. Nhat Hanh says, “As I bow, mindfulness becomes real in me. Seeing my deep reverence, the person to whom I bow also becomes awake… Suddenly the Buddha in each of us begins to shine, and we are in touch with the present moment.” Inspired by this shared moment of awareness, I painted this piece from a place of deep reverence and honor as a gift to the newest member of our family.
