Dharma Delight A Visionary Post Pop Comic Guide To Buddhism And Zen
Author- Greenblat Musho Rodney Alan
Rodney Alan Greenblat is world famous for his whimsical and engaging artwork. At the age of three he began drawing and painting, and his big break came in 1971, when at the age of 11 he was given the opportunity to illustrate the cover of his elementary school parent teacher’s association handbook. Years later, after moving to New York City, his wacky colorful sculptures and paintings became an integral part of the ballooning East Village Art scene of the 1980s, where he had several one person shows at the legendary Gracie Mansion Gallery. In 1985 his large sculpture “Ark of Triumph” was featured in the prestigious Whitney Museum Biennial exhibition.
Description-In Dharma Delight, abstract artist and Zen practitioner Rodney Greenblat uses lighthearted narrative and vivid pop art paintings to celebrate the joys of living life from the inside out. Part graphic guide, part personal testimony, part art book, Dharma Delight illustrates how seeking the path of compassion and acceptance can be as zany and exuberant as it is profound. It is a happy exploration of Buddhist Enlightenment—what it is, where to seek it—and how to recognize the perfection in ourselves. A great option for Zen beginners and experienced practitioners alike, sutras (teachings), Bodhisattvas (enlightened beings) and jataka tales (parables) are presented in a way that's simple, upbeat and fun to read. The original paintings—some new, some already known on the New York art scene and elsewhere—are an imaginative and affirming mind's-eye view of Buddhist teaching. Together, the words and illustrations are a warm and cheerful invitation to newcomers and a cool splash of refreshment to any traveler on the road to enlightenment.
