Yoga System£ 90.00 – £ 990.00 BUY
Yoga is a practice of physical, mental and spiritual discipline, which represents the mind, body and soul. This unique artwork is called the Yoga System, it’s composition symbolises peace. In the centre of the artwork there is a silhouette of a person in “asana” – the Sanksrit word for yogic posture or movement.
Above, there is the Maha mantra in Sanksrit :
Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare,
Hare Ram, Hare Ram, Ram Ram, Hare Hare.
The Maha mantra is chanted for benefits of the energies that come from the three Hindu deities that make up the mantra. The name Maha, means great; mantra is a composition of two Sanksrit words meaning mind and instrument. Thus in yoga, chanting a mantra, stills the mind in meditation and allows it to focus concentration on a single thought, resulting in spiritual awakening and a higher level of consciousness.
On the sides of the artwork, there are beautiful symbols which have been taken from various Indian dialects depicting AUM – the universal sound. Aum is one of the most recognized symbols in the world and is used regularly during the practice of Yoga.
The use of the colour in this artwork is uplifting, it reminds you of the eternal sky and, in turn reminds you of contemplation in the meditative state. In this painting of the Yoga System, the artist has adopted a contemporary style, to portray Inner Peace.
