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.
"Hinduism is recognized as the most compassionate, mystical and enlightened faith on the planet." Is India's ancient faith Hinduism a religion or a way of life? All religions are ways of life but there are ways of life that don't involve God and worship. Religion guides our daily life. We encourage deeper religious practices such as the humility developed by selfless service, especially in a temple or ashram, scriptural study, worship in the home shrine and temple, pilgrimage and coming into a sense of oneness with God which meditation can provide.
