All funds were donated to Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s earthquake relief efforts through the Tsoknyi Nepal Nuns.

We at Dakini As Art in collaboration with Images Of Enlighenment (Nepal) are launching an art fundraiser throughout May with 100% of proceeds above print and shipping costs for any Art Print Orders from Image Of Enlightenment’s galleries going directly to support Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s emergency earthquake relief efforts via the Tsoknyi Nepal Nuns.
“Our top priority is to relieve the suffering of human beings.”
See Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s grounded, heartfelt message on the situation in Nepal and his efforts with his Nepal Earthquake Emergency Relief fund.
Images of Enlightenment is a collective of traditionally trained artists based in Boudhanath, Nepal with a gallery right on the Boudhanath Stupa kora. We have been proud to feature their artists exceptional thangkas since our inception. Not only are their thangkas exquisite, they are wonderful people who truly put bodhichitta in action, as demonstrated over this last week. Raju Yonjan, IOE’s gallery manager, has been out campaigning and delivering food and other supplies to those in remote, rural villages devastated by the earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25th. When we proposed a fundraiser to raise funds for Rinpoche’s efforts, his immediate response was “Yes, do whatever will be of benefit.”
Featuring deities and dakinis from White Tara and Green Tara to Machig Labdron, Samantabhadri,Vajrayogini, Vajravarahi, Ekajati and more, the Images Of Enlightenment Collection, with old and new thangkas is one of a kind.
Again, 100% of proceeds above actual minimal printing costs and shipping from all print sales this month from IOE’s galleries will go directly to Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s Nepal Earthquake Emergency Relief Fund via the Tsoknyi Nepal Nuns.
New print gallery (launched May 27th, 2015):
Note: This is for art prints only, as original thangkas will be difficult to ship from Nepal this month in the earthquake’s aftermath.
