Buddhist wallpaper dump

Postby poto » Sat Nov 14, 2009 10:39 pm

I've had a bit of a hard time finding high resolution Buddhist themed wallpapers, so I thought I'd dump what I have.

All images should be 1280x1024 or higher and suitable for a wallpaper. Might be an occasional smaller one and a rare duplicate that found their way in, please don't complain. Might be a few that are just landscapes in there too. Wallpapers are from a bunch of different Buddhist traditions, some are Theravadin, Zen, Tibetan, etc.

I'm glad y'all enjoyed them. :)

Stefan, thanks for your contributions.

btw, if anybody wants some specific wallpaper edited or resized, let me know. I'm not as talented as a graphic designer, but I can do a few minor things with photoshop.

I like how the Buddha rupa has signs of aging and decay on it.
