Lama Gyurme, a Tibetan artist trained at Mindroling monastery in central Tibet and who painted and designed all of the art in the Tara Mandala Temple, is continuing his work to complete the temple design.
Lama Gyurme will paint 29 individual Dzogchen Mandalas that will be hung covering the entire ceiling of the Temple shrine room (Nirmanakaya). The choice of these particular mandalas was made with Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche‘s guidance. This will be an extremely unique set of mandalas that can trigger ‘liberation through seeing’. 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, thus the difference in sponsorship amount for each.
There is an opportunity to sponsor one or more of the Dzogchen mandalas and create a marvelous interdependent connection with Tara Mandala and the practices represented in the mandala. We welcome sponsorship dedications. 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 in a book about the mandalas. If you are looking to make your sponsorship more cost-effective, we suggest organizing a group of sangha members in sponsoring one of the mandalas, and sharing in the experience with your group!
