About the Art

Five aggregates and five elements make up the human body. Human emotions are mirrored by the five primary colors of red, green, blue, yellow, and white. In Buddhism, it is belived that whenever we experience any emotion, we are connected to one of the six realms. The six realms are symbolized by the six-syllabled mantra of om ma ni pad me hum associated with Sadaksheri Lokesvara, one of the 108 Lokesvara.
