Oh Self Effulgent Light that has given birth to all the realms, oh Divine One: illumine us .

Om Bhur Bhuvaha Swaha
Om Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi
Dhiyo Yonaha Prachodayat

This is the 2nd in a new series of gouache paintings done on blue lakta paper in the sumi style. I’m trying to create a luminous, shimmering quality to illustrate an experience of meditation in an attempt to transmit that experience to the viewer.
