Our artist, Suresh Mutthukulam of Kerala, recently finished one more of the ten paintings he is doing to illustrate Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami's commentary on Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, a book we plan to publish next year. Suresh is without a doubt one of India's most accomplished artists with a powerful graphic vocabulary of ideas. He often paints murals on Siva temples. Here he takes the famed story of Buddha under the banyan tree, assailed on all sides by threats, temptations, desires, distractions and fascinations of all sorts. Yet, he is not moved, but remains summa, still, centered on God Siva within. The story speaks of a few of the enticements.
