Buddha (Bodhi = wisdom) is not just a name! It’s a way of living life peacefully. A peaceful and satisfied soul can only attain enlightenment. We, human beings, don't take birth just to get name, fame and success. We take birth to resolve our past karmas through learning, self-love and practicing forgiveness. This leads our life towards wisdom.
In this journey, a strong foundation is the base for attaining enlightenment. If our roots are not deeply cleaned, we always feel unsafe, unsecured and ultimately end up living in low self-esteem forever.
In this art work, Gautama is meditating on Mudras of the root chakra. He overcame his fears by the knowledge gained in this meditative state. This led to a solid foundation of faith in root chakra and paved the way to begin his journey towards enlightenment.
My journey as an artist began a few years ago when I started an inner quest. At that point in time, paintings came as an unexpected gift into my life. I am a self-taught Artist born in the vibrant land of Rajasthan and brought up in the land of art and culture, Kolkata. Art brings serenity to my being.
My paintings are a reflection of my thoughts, my imagination, and my inner world. Through them, I connect with GOD. To me, painting is a means to self-healing. Whenever I seek peace, I paint Buddha. When I seek to understand the meaning of true love, I paint Radha and Krishna. When I seek to empower myself, I paint Durga.
In addition to my art work, I am associated with www.beameditator.com, a portal dedicated to spreading awareness about the benefits of meditation.
