Power of Faith

Art Description

“Faith can move mountains.” In Buddhism, faith is the serene belief that the teachings and practice
of Dharma will bring to fruition whatever human lives aspire for

– blissful happiness, which is not dependent on momentary fulfillment of desire, but a higher sense of transcendence that enlightenment brings.

It is common to see the elderly engaged in prayers, chanting, and other acts of faith- this is a time when they have completed their worldly responsibilities, and can focus on accumulating merit for their spiritual wellbeing. Objects like chanting beads, prayer flags, chorten, hand- held prayer wheels, and incense sticks are metaphoric tools that help us understand the Dharma, and sharpen our focus in our practice.

Tashi Pelzom

Born 1989, from Punakha

I loved art from a very young age, when I make simple pencil sketches to entertain myself. Since I joined VAST Bhutan in 2013 I developed interest in playing with various colours and its beauty. I am inspired by Asha Kama’s beautiful art. Another inspiration is my husband, also an artist, whom I am deeply proud of. He supports me in enhancing my art and keeps me going.

As a busy early childhood educator, I lost touch with painting and after my daughter was born I couldn’t pick it back up. I’m trying my best to find time whenever possible. I would want to be known as a realistic artist. I love to work with any kind of medium. Detailed work really helps me cultivate my creativity and patience.
