The Four Noble Truths by DorjeJampel The Four Noble Truths by DorjeJampel
འཕགས་པའི་བདེན་པ་བཞི་
Pakpé denpa shyi
(Wylie: 'phags pa'i bden pa bzhi)

The four truths are presented within the Buddha's first discourse, Setting in Motion the Wheel of the Dharma:

1. The truth of suffering (suffering, anxiety, dissatisfaction)
2. The truth of the origin of suffering
3. The truth of the cessation of suffering
4. The truth of the path leading to the cessation of suffering

Inspired by a work by the great British artist Tashi Mannox (www.tashimannox.com), and realized as a gift for Lama Lawang (may he have a long and prosperous life) to wish him a happy Losar.

Tibetan U-chen script, Pilot Parallel Pens 2,4 mm nib, with Iroshizuku Yama-Guri ink and Winsor & Newton Calligraphy Scarlet ink.

Hello-  I love your calligraphy, it's just beautiful.
I'm curious:  is there one word which describes each of the noble truths?  (Total of 4 words.)

I'm interested in adding this to a tattoo I have.

Thanks!

Yeah, the four red words:

སྡུག་བསྡལ: suffering
ཀུན་བྱུང་: all-pervasive origin (of suffering)
འགོག་པ་: cessation (of suffering)
ལམ་: the Path (that led to the end of suffering)

I like the soft color transition from red to black.
Did you make the hor-yig seal script and carving yourself or is it made by Tashi Mannox?

No it is my design, both of them. But I took the design to a friend of mine to carve it on a rubber stamp. I hope to meet Tashi in Belgium next year. He will give a calligraphy class. I am looking forward to meet him. He is a true master and a great artist. I am a great Tashi fan. I can say thanks to him, if I found this fantastic way of practicing. 
My calligraphy of The Four Noble Truths it is clearly inspired by him, as I wrote in the description.
This calligraphy was a gift for a Lama, this year Losar. The transition from black to red was made with the Pilot Parallel pens, a fantastic tool for a calligrapher in my opinion. The only problem is that this kind of tool uses fountain pen inks, not so good to resist at the proof of time... But is that the impermanence, right?? :)

Great. Well done.
I still have to find a way to make my signature into a seal. I am only painting it with a small brush.
Well, at least that gives me assurance that the ink is waterproof like the ink for the painting itself.
I am making my paintings wet in order to flatten this very thin rice paper. Hence, it needs to dry waterproof.

I hope you will still find a better ink for your tools. It is important that such work lasts for a long time.
Who knows, it might make some future humanity curious to find out more about this culture.
But of course your are right about impermanence. Our work is like autumn leaves falling from a tree.

Keep it coming friend.

Do you sell original calligraphy pieces, or only prints? I find profound benefit in your elegant and potent work. As a Reiki and Dharma practitioner, I'd like to purchase some pieces for my studio. Thank you for your work and being. -- s.d.mullaney, Boston, MA

Hi! No, I sell original artwork, if asked. On commission, of course: you can tell me size, the quote or the word or the Mantra you want ecc. 
I sell even mala made by me! Take a look here:  dorjejampel.daportfolio.com/
I am a Dharma pratictioner too, so you can be sure that every work written by me is blessed with preliminary and specific practices before (but during too) writing.
Please let me know!

Thank you Tashi Delek

As someone who loves foreign languages, I can tell you this piece was fascinating. I really like how you added a subtle variant to the brightness of color to add texture and breath life into the piece.

Beautiful work! I like how you alternated between red and black ink, and got stamps to match the calligraphy in color. It's only a pity that the calligraphy isn't a bit smaller so it matches the structure of the stamps more in texture, but I guess that's reverse designing as I assume you naturally did the calligraphy first and the stamps at the end as a sort of signature.
