Portrait of Pema Chödrön incorporating the graphic styling of Shepard Fairey from his famous  Barack Obama “Hope” Poster with Buddhist Notion of “Hopelessness” as described by Pema:

If hope and fear are two sides on one coin, so are hopelessness and confidence. If we’re willing to give up hope that insecurity and pain can be exterminated, then we can have  the courage to relax with the groundlessness of our situation.  This is the first step on the path”. – Pema Chödrön
