East meets West

by Lama Tashi Norbu
Now on Display
The 21st century witnesses the coming closer of Eastern and Western cultural philosophies. It is the rational of a proposal to amalgamate wisdom from East and West, to instigate a wisdom of a renaissance of humanistic values and provide a platform of harmony across the planet. East and West meet, because their virtues blend, share and embrace aspects, ideas and attitudes specially valuable in this era of global concern, to create a synergy of one people, of one space. Involving political values and meanings between East and West, marking an Era of Diaspora and an oppression for freedom. It is a sense of a meeting of minds!
And here the Time travelers, as a means of transportation, carrying messages between East and West and between times when the Eastern culture of Asia meets the Western; a great approach reminding nature when sun rises in the East and sets in the West. Time travelers are Artist’s flying mystics, butterflies, unicorns, angels, energy, meditation, or human’s desire to fly. A spellbinding memory, depicted on canvas with eloquence, empathy, self-effacing humor, insight and love.
In the Tibetan literature we read that Buddha flew through air to travel to various destinations. Great Lamas and their students were known for flying into the skies. They were charismatic, compassionate and controversial Teachers who lived in caves and fed by nectar of mysterious flowers. Some are even said to have been able to see one’s past lives while countless Teachers are said to have been able to disappear into a rainbow cloud.
Are we supposed to believe this? Not everything needs to be explained nor are there concrete answers to the question. One thing is true and that is, what we continue to hear, through the messages of these Teachers: The power of our invisible world. No matter if we talk about thoughts and feelings, or about the subconscious mind, our beliefs, and our connection to spirit. It has become obvious and evident, to that everything in our visible world, first comes from the invisible world. Where not only East and West meet, but all four signs of the horizon, where are no boundaries, but one land, and one voice.
