Prajnaparamita -perfection Of Wisdom
Drawing - Pencil On Paper
The female deity Prajnaparamita embodies the wisdom of all Buddhas.
Prajnaparamita has a beautiful golden body, carries precious jewels and wears beautiful silken robes, as a queen from ancient India. She has four arms; two are in her lap in meditation posture. In her other hands she holds a Vajra (a ritual scepter destroying all kinds of ignorance) and a text known as the ‘Perfection of Wisdom Sutra.’
The Buddha gave many teachings on the Pefection of Wisdom and these vary greatly in length.
The longest is known as the ‘Perfection of Wisdom Sutra in One Hundred Thousand Verses’ and its purpose is to show how the Bodhisattva should train in the correct view of reality and thereby achieve full awakening from ignorance.
The popular Heart Sutra is the shortest version of the ‘Sutras of Wisdom’ that the Buddha presented.
The Heart Sutra explaines the Wisdom and Method needed to become a Buddha yourself.
It is a powerful method to overcome obstacles, and to learn to see things as they really are
