‘Mind is Clear Light’ – Dzogchen Buddhist Navy T-shirt
Designed for us by a Tibetan calligrapher, this striking graphic features the phrase ‘mind is clear light’ written within classical Tibetan cloud forms.
‘Mind is clear light’ is a line from the ‘Eight Thousand Verse Prajñāparamitā’ by Shakyamuni Buddha. Prajñāparamitā is a Sanskrit word that means ‘perfection of wisdom’ and refers to a perfected way of seeing the nature of reality.
Luminosity, or clear light, is a central concept in Tibetan Dzogchen Buddhism and is usually used to describe the true nature of mind, or ultimate root of consciousness . The nature of unconditioned awareness is said to be glaringly empty (sunyata), lucidly clear, vividly pure, spontaneously present, perfectly even and expansively open.
Within the artwork the clouds represent negative conditioning and emotions that arise within our own (ego centric) mind that obscure the ‘clear light’. The ultimate objective of Dzochen practice is to dispel the clouds of ‘ignorance’ that obscure the true nature of reality in order that unconditioned pure awareness is established.

Organic cotton requires a little more care than regular pesticide filled cotton and therefore needs to be washed on a cool cycle inside out. Organic cotton should never see the inside of your tumble dryer, air drying is best! Never iron directly onto the hand screen printed graphics – iron the garment inside out or use a clean cloth as a barrier.
