Five Kleshas

The monastery has commissioned Suresh Muthukulam of Kerala, India, to paint ten works of art for a book we plan to publish next year. It is Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami's own commentary on Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. We thought you would enjoy seeing them now and then as they come in. This one is a blissful yogi on a flying carpet hovering above Siva's Mount Kailas in radiant blessedness. His carpet is held up by a gust of wind created by Vayu, Lord of the Wind.

    Jai Jai Shree Maha Ganesh!
    Thank you Swamis for this post and Suresh the Artist. Also for the meaning of the five icy peaks on all sides of Mount Kailash. Whenever I pray at home in the foyer of the house where Lord Ganesha, Lord Siva (in the form a small lingam), Nagapooshani Amman and Lord Murugan, I blow the conch five times remembering the five functions of Lord Siva meditating in Mount Kailash. The Lord in his infinite wisdom is drawing his devotees even closer.
    Aum Nama Sivaya
    Sivaya Nama Aum
