Tree of life

ūrdhva-mūlam adhaḥ-śhākham aśhvatthaṁ prāhur avyayam
chhandānsi yasya parṇāni yas taṁ veda sa veda-vit”

Bhagwath Gita speaks of an eternal aśhvatth tree with its roots above and branches below. Its leaves are the Vedic hymns, and one who knows the secret of this tree is the knower of the supreme knowledge or knowledge of transcendence.

River of fire

The path of love is the path of self-realisation. To love the other is to love oneself. In this river the deeper you dive the better you swim, without hurdles.

The Golden Womb
       
     
The Golden Womb

The spirit of The Golden Womb- ‘Hiranyagarbha’, an icon of fertility is intrinsic to my artistic expressions. ‘The Golden Womb’ series expresses the constant state of positive procreation, recycling of energies that function throughout the universe. Literally understood by me as Golden Womb, that, which is self-pervading, engulfs every single element and being. I believe that all creation has emerged out of the feminine aspect of sun which is constantly celeberating through creation, sustenance and destruction.

Storm in my Teacup

I believe everything is living and throbbing with life. I connect with these through conversations. Tea and tea cups being merely symbolic of these conversations.

"My darling child!" she cried, folding the little girl in her arms and covering her face with kisses. "Where in the world did you come from?"

"From the Land of Oz," said Dorothy gravely. "And here is Toto, too. And oh, Aunt Em! I'm so glad to be at home again!"-L. Frank Baum

Me

Everything seems to be in a constant state of creativity yet very static and at peace with itself. Only we sometimes lose the sensitivity to capture the constant rhythm of this eternal being or its state of constant celebration.

Ratri

Ratri are you quiet,

night are you the silence

when we cuddle into your womb

visiting temporary death

only to be bathed by the golden morning rays

I walk the path of water and air

 Without beginning or ending,

            Your original wisdom has been

Shining forever, like the sun.

To know whether or not this is true,

Look inside your own mind.

Ouroborus

. I have attempted to grasp the mystical laws of nature and their interpretations in different cultures and sub-cultures of the world. It is during this research that I stumbled upon Ouroboros, a mythical, coiled self-sustaining serpent, swallowing its own tail and recreating itself.

The Golden womb
       
     
The Golden womb

According to my understanding the Golden Womb' or ‘Hiranya Garbha' is the first eternal womb. It bears all the suns, moons and universes from which the five elements- earth, water, fire, air and ether emerge. According to the Hindu mythology, the Universal Self is the ultimate being, as all bodies are an outer garb-which is neither male nor female, neither good or bad, nor gold or silver; the moment it takes the form, it is Maya or illusion or the feminine aspect of the Universal Self. I personally believe that if all creation has emerged out of that universal womb; then the ultimate has to have the feminine qualities of procreation.

In the belly of the fish - Matsyendara Nath

My paperwork titled "Matsyandranatha"
are based on the birth, life, and concepts of Matsyanandranatha. He was considered a great yogi, who propagated the Yogini cult and the concept of feminine form as the embodiment of unified energies which keeps on expanding and is busy creating and recycling the Universe. In some scriptures, he is also considered as an incarnation of Mahadeva Shiva.
