Atmika

To beleaguered soul moves on it its endless journey of life and death every day and night. I invoke the cosmic energy of the Divine Mother to muster courage and face the mounting challenges of mundane existence. Devi Durga symbolizes to me exactly what the name suggests my divine mother she is my support, my anchor, the repository of my faith and hope. Mind and words are powerless to encompass her celestial glory whose extent is as immeasurable as that of cosmic space. Devi is beautiful and bountiful, beneficent and terrifying, compassionate and ruthlessly righteous. The composite imagery of the supreme immanent Shakti, as depicted in Sri Sri Chandi, is a unique aspect of our polytheistic pantheon. The myriad heavenly forms of the mother appear in my consciousness in countless forms and I make a modest attempt to give shape to them through my brushstrokes.

The dream that is the phenomenal manifestation occurs in consciousness. It is perceived and cognized in consciousness, and is given earthly shape in color on canvas through the duality that is the basis of all phenomenal manifestation. The water filled red earthen vessel, the bilwa tree, the nabapatrika all are manifest aspects of the unmanifest and unconcealed. My paintings are just an iconographic representation of the cosmic struggle, the divine play and the victory of good over evil. In this confused and troubled times of ours, worship of the parama prakriti makes life meaningful so that there is peace and harmony in daily living things otherwise overshadowed by the pressures and excesses of life. All the confusion, conflict, duality, ignorance, egoism, jingoism and vagaries of the past and present make a hasty retreat when we worship the divine mother and connect the cosmic consciousness to our physical body. The divine images of the mother mesmerize me and transport me from the transient world to the transcendental and I want to celebrate this spirit of boundless joy and spread the message of universal love and goodwill through my painting and brushstrokes.
