A Trip to the Rubin Museum with Jack Niland

We had the good fortune of spending some time with Jack Niland last night, who explained to us some of the principles of Dharma Art.

“Everything starts with looking into emptiness- that is the most profound Buddhist teaching there is…space contains everything that ever was, is, and will be …every painting that’s ever been conceived is in the space, everything that will be painted in the future, every building, every poem, every weapon, everything that ever will some day exist in the universe, or has, is inherent in the space, it’s there.” -Jack [About a thangka painting]

“So if you’re an artist-there are two kinds of artists. One is egotistical…which implies aggression. The other is ego-less, which implies non-aggression.”-Jack

Lucky us! Thank you Jack!
