Anyone read Tibetan?

Postby Indrajala » Thu Mar 18, 2010 10:47 am

I was going through my photos from January and realized I don't know what these images and texts mean. The Imperial Palace museum in Taipei has Tibetan artefacts on display. The ol' Chinese Emperors had an interest in Tibetan Buddhism.

3th picture: Namo Buddha Ya, Namo Dharma Ya, Namo Sangha Ya.
For the Triratna (Kunchog Sum) I bow down.

4th picture is about: Buddha's very much detailed elaborated great sutra (mDo Phalpo Che: Avatamsaka), first section. The Victorious ten disciples together as for the Bodhisattvas.
Projecting onto others is projecting onto projections. The answer lies in us, not in the other.

Don’t investigate the root of things,
Investigate the root of Mind!
Once the mind’s root has been found,
You’ll know one thing, yet all is thereby freed.
But if the root of Mind you fail to find,
You will know everything but nothing
understand. Guru Rinpoche.
