About the Art

Gunla, a significant eventful month in Newar Buddhism, involves scripture recitation, fasting, and visits to cultural sites with devotional music. It addresses issues caused by excessive rain and involves Bahidyah Bwayegu, a ceremony involving Dipankara Buddha and paubha paintings in sacred courtyards. This painting, created from 2018 to 2023, captures the essence of this ceremony and the memory of the Dipankara Buddha. The painting showcases hanging Bodhisattvas, chaitya, and paubhas, surrounded by other Buddhist deities and offerings. The painting encapsulates the richness of Newar Buddhist culture and preserves traditions for generations.
