Custom Garland of 108 Beads

I very much enjoyed making this custom garland of 108 beads. Based on the book, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying written by Sogyal Rinpoche, Andrew Harvey & Patrick Gaffney, the garland is covered in an edit of the text and broken up into 4 sections representing the 4 Bardos. It begins with a mirror, and ends with 3 beads of Om Mani Padme Hung in script.

"Go to a quiet place and rob all your perceptions, and steal all the stars and planets in the sky, and dissolve them into the belly of emptiness, the all-encompassing space of the nature of mind.”

"Everything is spontaneously liberated in the absolute nature, like knots untied in the sky."

"The entire vision then dissolves back into its original essence, like a tent collapsing once its ropes are cut."
