Timeless Offerings

Rashani Réa beautifully transposes a profound teaching into visual elements of essential potency – transporting us here and everywhere at once. What a beautiful offering, ending with a glimpse into the story of her life’s journey.”

“These visual haiku leap from the page into the heart. Mmmmm!”

“Each of our senses has its own language, and Rashani’s genius has been to capture and intensify the meaning of words through the languages of color and form. It’s really a kind of magic she weaves so that each quote from Anam Thubten Rinpoche becomes a seed that breaks open in the ground of your being, sends roots into your spirit and blooms in your heart. This happens over and over with every page until by book’s end you are sitting in a garden of delight.”

“Balance, clarity, wisdom, beauty – all these qualities shine as one in these pages. If you scroll through them at leisure, you will see what I mean. The colors and shapes are themselves, like the words they enshrine, messages from the heart of silence, and the mind responds in happy self-recognition. Thanks and a deep bow to the source of this luminous gift.”

“Timeless Offerings is an inspiring feast of Truth and beauty: emptiness and form dancing within the eloquence, gravitas and precision of Anam Thubten Rinpoche’s words and the evocative imagery of Rashani Réa.”

“Wisdom delivers its greatest impact when it’s properly framed – or re-framed. This marvelous collection of mind pearls from a living master, re-framed by a visionary artist, is a feast for the eye and heart. This book hit me in the most beautiful way.”

 

– Andrew Holecek

Author of The Power and the Pain

 

“Rashani has impeccably combined these direct pointers to our true nature. There is no need to understand, analyze, discuss… the beauty and the truth in them will move through you. These pointers have the capacity to fully open your heart and land right into the essence of your spiritual journey. Let them flow in you with every breath.”

“How brilliant that Rashani brings a new dimension to Anam Thubten’s pithy Vajra lightning bolts and poetry! Her art explodes in a synaesthesia of colors, shapes, emptiness and ecstatic spontaniety, in which the experiencing participant simply awakens – as wisdom-gone-beyond. Truly, a teaching for all of humanity.”
