Rainbow Buddha. An Original Contemporary Art Work by Lita Xú Líng Kelley

Rainbow Buddha

Rainbow Buddha - Original Buddhist Art by Lita Xú Líng Kelley
Colorful neon bright multicoloered rainbow watercolor painting mixed media artwork of Buddha meditating.

This original artwork by Lita Kelley was inspired by the Buddhist concept of the rainbow body.

"The rainbow body is a concept in Tibetan Buddhism when everything begins to transform into pure light. It is said to be the highest state attainable in the realm of samsara before the "clear light" of Nirvana.

As the spectrum contains within itself all possible manifestations of light, and thus of color, the rainbow body signifies the awakening of the inner self to the complete reservoir of terrestrial knowledge that it is possible to access before stepping over the threshold to the state of Nirvana. Understandably, when depicted in the visual arts, due to the profusion of colors, the result is spectacularly unique."
