This artwork by Lama Zopa Rinpoche depicts the tale of four animals who work harmoniously together, helping each other to get what they need. Rather than be motivated by selfish concern, they are motivated by cherishing others. The story shows how we all may have different strengths and weaknesses, when we work together we can accomplish great things that we may not be able to accomplish alone.
“This story is a story of interdependence. It is a story explaining how there is no place for self-cherishing, but rather we need each other and we need to help each other. The worst thing is self-cherishing. This is a story about working harmoniously.” – Venerable Ribur Rinpoche
It is also said that wherever a picture of the four brothers is displayed, the 10 virtues will increase and the minds of all will become harmonious. There will be respect for elders and auspicious events will occur.
