Art and Practices for Navigating Our World

In this time of great instability, our global community is experiencing growing fear, loss, isolation, and stress。 When faced with uncertainty and turmoil, Buddhists rely on traditional practices developed over two thousand years to harness the mind and help change perspectives, manage emotions, and cultivate compassion。

Inspired by the practices reflected in Buddhist visual culture, these resources may help you handle stress and foster peace of mind wherever you are.

Artful Inspiration for Compassion

Artful Inspiration for Compassion

Mandalas are among the most recognizable, visually evocative, and powerful objects in Tantric Buddhism。 They represent a deity and his or her perfect palatial abode, making this ideal cosmos into a living presence in our world。 Practitioners use mandalas as aids for visualization in meditation to cultivate the mind of a deity。 This 12th-century mandala from India takes the shape of a lotus, a symbol of purity。 One aim of visualization practices is to recognize that the apparently impure world is, in reality, pure。


Awaken to Activism

Awaken to Activism

Meditation and activism can work together to help us navigate a chaotic world. Kate Johnson writes about how the two reinforce one another in “Waking Up to Power Is a Spiritual Practice.” “I thought I needed a refuge from the troubles of the world,” she writes. “What I got was a refuge where I could process the troubles of the world, a place where I could cultivate enough well-being to reengage with it.”
