Tibetan Calendar 2019

Tibetan Calendar – Introduction

Transmission, teachings and practice of the Heart Sutra

The Perfection of Wisdom, the Prajna Paramita, is contained within the Heart of Wisdom Sutra. This Sutra is the heart of the buddhist Mahayana school practiced in China, Japan, South-east Asia and Tibet.

The realised one, Avalokiteshvara, before a grand assembly of monks and sages, replied to a question posed by the sage Shariputra on the correct view of the five aggregates. Thus were explained the Five Paths to Buddhahood, and the profound transcendental knowledge of emptiness, this being the best way to eliminate internal and external interferences.

Tibetan Calendar – Introduction

Riccardo Arena

Riccardo Arena is an italian artist based in Milan. His work investigates the relationships between territory, culture, psyche and landscape through the creation of articulated narrative and visual imagery.

His work explores multiple languages and techniques: photography, painting, graphic novels, design, film direction, animation, installations, teaching and writing; an eclectic approach that reflects a path that has led him to different professional skills and to collaborates with figures belonging to different fields.

Over the years, he developed independent projects in different countries of the world. The scheduled time for completion and the contents of these projects were defined through gathering, correspondence and study of heterogeneous documents accumulated in the course of his travel experiences. The work is conceived as a poetic formalization of the research.

The constant flitting between the stratification of study materials and their internal and intuitive reconfiguration is condensed into complex narrative structures that becomes the fundamental principle of the work: visual reflexions, exhibitions, installations, films, writings, conferences and workshops; all of these are all orchestrated into a constellation in mutual dialogue, tracing and contemplating the universal components that bound stories, myths and theories distant in time and geographies.

After the projects developed in China “Four Times a Tree” (2006/2008), Argentina “Dual death Ellero and visual ecosystem” (2009/2012), Russia “Vavilon” (2013/2017), he is currently working on “LuDD – Topography of Light” based on a novel written in 2019, which is inspired by a series of travels and researches among Iran, Armenia and Ethiopia.

Riccardo Arena (Milan, 1979) lives and works in Milan. His works were exhibited at: MAMbo – Bologna Modern Art Museum; Matera Capital of Culture 2019; ITALIAN CULTURAL INSTITUTE OF ADDIS ABEBA, Ethiopia; MERKUROV MUSEUM, TRIENNIAL OF CONTEMPORARY ART IN ARMENIA, Gyumri; MAXXI, Rome; IMMA, Dublin, CENTROPECCI, Prato; QUADRIENNALE D’ARTE, Rome; ITALIAN CULTURAL INSTITUTE OF LONDON, England; VIAFARINI, Milan; FONDAZIONE SANDRETTO RE REBAUDENGO, Turin; PREMIO FURLA, Palazzo Reale, Milan; MART, Rovereto; MAGA, Gallarate; MUSEO DEL NOVECENTO, Milan; 54th VENICE BIENNALE, Buenos Aires/Venice; 1918ARTSPACE, Shanghai. He took part to workshops and residences like: KOOSHK Residency, Theran; IN FAVOUR OF A TOTAL ECLIPSE, Fiorucci Art Trust, Stromboli; VIR, Viafarini Residency, Milan. He was selected as a finalist for the MAXXI PRICE 2017 and won the National Prize LONG PLAY – XXIV, by MAGA, Gallarate and the First Prize at MANUALMENTE, Varese.

Tibetan Calendar – Introduction

Empowerment and practice of Buddha Mitrugpa

Guru Buddha Mitrugpa is a special healing form of Supreme Healer Akshobhya who helps us to purify our karmic obscurations and negative actions. In the past out of anger and ignorance we have done many different negative actions and broken our vows, but if we recite it bad signs, bad dreams, and inauspiciousness will be eliminated. If we write it on a scroll and wear on our body, untimely death will not occur. If we with compassion recites it within the hearing of an animal, bird, or person,while they are dying, that person will not be reborn in a state of suffering and ignorance… “If someone who has committed the five heinous deeds, rejected the dharma, or disparaged a holy being sees this dharani mantra written on a wall as they are dying, all their karmic obscurations will be extinguished.
