Self Effulgent Light


Surrounded by Heaven
Wrapped up in blue, sacred as the night

My soul sees you

Struggling through this life, reaching for the Light

Feel it in you

The warmth inside your heart

You are peace: You are Love

You are heaven

The sacred Beloved One lives inside of you.

So let it shine, light up the world

The sacred Beloved One lives inside of you.


Gouache. Painting is approximately 5×7 on blue lakta paper.


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.

Spread the love
