Amsterdam artist Pieter Veltevrede sent the fifth of the Sadasiva series of canvases yesterday. Here is Palaniswami's note responding to Pieter's request for a reaction:
Isana has a dimensionality that I love, sitting there in space-akasha. You have so poetically captured the profound insight about microcosm and macrocosm, the there is Infinite Galactic space virtually the same size as Sub Atomic space. Our Gurudeva taught that the microcosmic inner space is actually larger than the macrocosmic outer space, and that seems to be one of the songs your art sings here.
And the ethereal lotus-that's my WOW! for this one, the petals of space dust and light, a celestial flower extending to the edge of existence.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
