Learn Sacred Geometry through Tibetan Drawing, Buddha’s Head

The other day I stumbled upon a webpage dedicated to Tibetan Drawing. This is a precise system of sacred geometry. The Buddhist Temple website explains, “Traditionally drawing the Buddha face is the beginning of learning thangka painting…These grids were developed over many centuries from both sutra and tantra traditions. Because in Buddhist sacred art, correct measurements are very important, thus the sacred geometry…A person who sees a perfect Buddha, has the seed of Enlightenment placed in his heart. This in Tibetan is called Thongdrol, or Liberation by Sight. There is no hurry, take your time and as well as drawing, concentrate on your breath, make this a meditation practice.
I’ve been practicing at home and thought you might like to try drawing the Buddha’s head as well. Here are the instructions from the Buddhist Temple website.
