This is an introduction manual for drawing and painting the wheel of life. (“Skt. “Bhavachakra” and Tib. “Sipae Korlo”) is one of the most popular and important paintings within Tibetan Buddhist iconography, since the instructions for this diagram come from Buddha Shakyamuni himself. According to the extensive enjoyment Sutra, Shakymuni relayed the details of this diagram to an artist to demonstrate his perception and understanding of existence as well as life after death. The Wheel of Life is commonly painted near entrances to monasteries and temples as a reminder to visitors to check their reasons for entering such sacred sites.
