Dudjom Tersar Refuge Tree by Kumar Lama



Kumar Lama and Lama Tharchin Rinpoche
Kumar Lama and Lama Tharchin Rinpoche

In 1994, Kumar lama, while exhibiting his art in Switzerland, met Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, founder of the Vajrayana Foundation in Watsonville, California. Lama Tharchin had been looking for an artist to paint the Dudjom Tersar Lineage Tree for his temple, but had not been able to find one who had the technical skill for this project. When he saw the exhibition of Kumar Lama’s work, Lama Tharchin knew that he had finally found the right thangka painter for the job. As a result of this meeting, in 1996, Lama Tharchin Rinpoche invited Kumar Lama to settle in the United States, to paint and teach under the auspices of the Vajrayana Foundation and commissioned him to paint the Dudjom Tersar Lineage Tree. This project ,unframed at 5 ½ feet by 8 feet, took two years to complete. The work is very precise, detailed and meticulously executed. Many of the fine lines on this painting are made with brushes of only a few bristles. The skill that it takes to paint these lines without a trace of a wiggle is the result of 30 years of daily practice.  Read more about Kumar Lama…
