Tan Weng Sim #Bodhidharma in Meditation
“The great being, should produce an unsupported thought, i.e. a thought which is nowhere supported, a thought unsupported by sights, sounds, smells, tastes, touchable or mind-objects.”
The profound impact of this dynamic learning process on Subhuti is attested to by his tears of joy, signalling the existential depths that have been plumbed. Significantly the passage declaring the bodhisattva’s “unsupported” status has been identified in some versions of the Platform Sutra (六祖坛经) as the catalyst to the awakening of the Sixth Chan Patriarch Huineng. During a late night session with the Fifth Patriarch: “When he came to the phrase, ‘One should activate one’s mind so it has no attachment,’ I was suddenly and completely enlightened, and understood that all things exits in self-nature”.
Subsequently, Huineng expounded his core doctrines of “no-thought” 无念; “no-form” 无相; and most importantly “no-attachment” or “no-abiding” 无住. Thought must be emptied out due to our fixation on intellectual constructs, which we mistake for reality.
This is a nicely-detailed painting using the technique of Chinese ink on rice paper. In the mounted process, the artwork is flattened out and laminated to several more sheets of rice paper to make it thicker, yet pliable. Also, a nice silk border is added around the edges of the painting with the addition of a wooden frame. A high quality yet meaningful artwork for your collection.
