We have known Arthur Brownstein and his wife Nutan for decades. Nutan’s father is the famed Indra Sharma who has since gone to Siva’s Feet, but had done many paintings for the Aadheenam years ago, including marvelous portraits of Gurudeva and Yogaswami.
Indra’s son, Chandra Sharma and his daughter, Veena, Nutan’s sister here behind the painting, are also artists. Chandra Sharma’s is considered one of India’s top contemporary artists.
This painting of Sadasiva was commissioned to be used for a future cover of Hinduism Today. Chandra Sharma kindly did the work for free as a contribution to the cause.
The three distinct attainments in our philosophy: realization-nirvikalpa samadhi, moksha-liberation and merger-vishvagrasa. Believe in our ability to raise consciousness high and hold it. Every day live in the highest state of consciousness you can. Take on Siva's point of view, see divinity. Experience what's real. Pay attention to that aspect of you which is Siva.
