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.

"When you meditate, don't send your mind outside. Don't fasten onto any knowledge at all. Whatever knowledge you've gained from books or teachers, don't bring it in to complicate things. Cut away all preoccupations, and then as you meditate let all your knowledge come from what's going on in the mind. When the mind is quiet, you'll know it for yourself. But you have to keep meditating a lot. When the time comes for things to develop, they'll develop on their own. Whatever you know, have it come from your own mind.
