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 idea of Monistic Theism is seen in the three perfections of God Siva. Theism is the face of evolving, monism is always the Truth. We have pure consciousness and the source of pure consciousness, Absolute Reality. The soul body is maturing. The nucleus of your soul and Parameshvara are identical, you just have to realize it. Imkaif, Parasiva, one of the three perfections--you can't describe it.
