Honoured to be a part of an upcoming art exhibition hosted by the National Council of Indian Culture. The exhibition opens on Tuesday 9th May 2017.
My mixed media painting is titled Swaha. Oblations into the sacred fire are offered with the mantra Swaha. With 'swa' meaning 'oneself' and 'ha' meaning 'to offer' it is the moment of ultimate acceptance of what has come before and what is so, right now. It is an honouring of "what will be" with reverence to our efforts and a simultaneous surrendering to a power greater than ourselves. By teaching and guiding our younger ones, so too do we surrender to them, our traditions, to be honoured and in turn passed onto future generations.
