This highly textured painting depicts the vision of a vast form of tranquil Buddha (against the canvas of the overhead sky) bestowed onto the 3 Burmese monks while on their journey to the mystical land of Shambala to learn and absorb the higher teachings of the real 'Self'. The monks having detached themselves from the transient world seek to attach themselves to the supreme reality as they seek the ultimate goal of enlightenment.
As they say, Buddha taught that all of life is suffering and that suffering arises from desire; therefore regardless of what Buddhist tradition a monk falls into, the first step on his path to enlightenment is the renunciation of secular life. This requires the giving up of all worldly possessions other than medical articles. For monks, followers who wholly devote themselves to the Buddha's teachings and the attainment of enlightenment, this step is necessary to remove the secular obstacles to the path that create desire and distract from acquiring the teachings and implementing essential practices such as meditation.
