This week’s Sundae Puzzle is inspired by my yesterday’s visit to the Rubin Museum. Well, actually it was inspired by my visit to the Rubin Museum’s gift shop, which housed many books and gifts that were from India and Tibet.
Lakshmi, is the Hindu and Jain goddess of wealth, prosperity and good fortune. The consort of Vishnu, she is said to have taken different forms to be with him in each of his incarnations. She is a principal object of worship during Divali, when her presence is sought in homes, temples, and businesses for the whole of the year to come.
The Exhibit that I saw was worth seeing, as well!
Art’s Mandala: The Perfect Circle
“This exhibition explores the mandala, one of Tantric Buddhism’s most widely used meditational tools. Although mandalas have been assigned any number of definitions, from magic circles to cosmic diagrams, few of these meanings are either specific or expansive enough. The exhibition seeks to both refine and deepen our understanding of the mandala, decoding its structure, meaning, and related practices.”
Watch the online exhibition!
