Anyone read Tibetan?

Postby Indrajala » Thu Mar 18, 2010 10:47 am

I was going through my photos from January and realized I don't know what these images and texts mean. The Imperial Palace museum in Taipei has Tibetan artefacts on display. The ol' Chinese Emperors had an interest in Tibetan Buddhism.

Pretty neat stuff. :smile: But what does it all mean? :shrug:

3th picture: Namo Buddha Ya, Namo Dharma Ya, Namo Sangha Ya.
For the Triratna (Kunchog Sum) I bow down.

4th picture is about: Buddha's very much detailed elaborated great sutra (mDo Phalpo Che: Avatamsaka), first section. The Victorious ten disciples together as for the Bodhisattvas.
Rest in natural great peace this exhausted mind,
Beaten helplessly by karma and neurotic thoughts
Like the relentless fury of the pounding waves
In the infinite ocean of samsara.
Rest in natural great peace.
~Nyoshul Khenpo Rinpoche
