Welcome to tibetanart.com - the website of the British artist and author Robert Beer, who first began to study and practice Tibetan Art in 1970. Showcased in galleries are masterpieces of Tibetan Buddhist and Hindu Tantric art painted by the finest contemporary thangka painters and Newar artists of the Kathmandu Valley.
The main purpose of this site is to reveal the incredible skills of these artists by making their original works available as fine-art Giclee Prints, which are all meticulously accurate in their iconography, colour fidelity and detail. Each painting has a precise description written by Robert Beer, who is working with a master printer to individually produce these archival prints. Also exhibited are the exquisite visionary paintings and mandalas of John F B Miles, along with other deity prints and postcards. Essentially the artists themselves are represented here as some of the most spiritual and divinely inspired painters of our time.
Apologies for my delay in putting my Website back on line again. But it took quite a while to relocate and move house once again. But now having done so, my Website will be up and running again for the rest of this coming year of 2024.
This thangka, painted by Chewang Dorje in 2003, depicts the Nyingma Refuge Tree or Merit Field assembly that is visualized in the 'Preliminary Practices' (ngondro) of the Dudjom Tersar or 'New Treasures (tersar) of Dudjom' tradition, which were revealed relatively recently by Dudjom Lingpa and his successor Dudjom Rinpoche. Padmasambhava is said to have composed this concise practice, along with other related practices in the early ninth century, before concealing them as hidden treasures (terma) that would be revealed in a more degenerate time when people had less time to practice the Dharma.

This painting shows the secret dakini aspect of Vajrayogini as Red Khechari, whose practice is associated with the great eleventh century Indian yogini, Sukhasiddhi. Niguma and Sukhasiddhi were the two yogini teachers of the Tibetan master Khyungpo Naljor (10th-12th century), the founder of the Shangpa Kagyu tradition, who considered Sukhasiddhi to be both his kindest teacher and his secret consort. The Shangpa Kagyu lineage is renowned for its unique Highest Yoga Tantra doctrines, known as 'The Six Doctrines of Sukhasiddhi' and 'The Six Doctrines of Niguma'.

This composition depicts Vajrayogini (Tib. Dorje Naljorma) in her form as Naro Khandroma or 'Naropa's Dakini'. Vajrayogini belongs to the Highest Yoga Tantra class of deities and is the principle female yidam deity or dakini in the Vajrayana Buddhist pantheon. As the consort of Chakrasamavara she is of equal importance in both the Tibetan and Newar Buddhist traditions. In the Newar tradition Vajrayogini has four main aspects, each of which has her own special temple within the Kathmandu Valley. And these four temples are located at the sacred sites of Sankhu, Parping, Bijeshvari, and Guhyeshvari.
