Spread the word about Cortical Retreat

From a series exploring the mind as a mandala, Cortical Retreat is divided primarily into left and right and ultimately abstracted to the four-direction structure.  The ultimate resolution of these is Bhuvanakrtimandala - a mandala depicting emptiness.

Cortical Retreat


Norman Sjoman

  The final resolution in the Norman Sjoman's series of mandalas, Bhuvanakrtimandalam depicts the universe and the emptiness within. The caption in the void reads: 'The world of Siva (Rudra) is a mandala in the form of the universe. It's inside of you. It's your own body and it is identical with your own consciousness.' The painting comes from a circular meeting of shamans. The text is from an Atharva Veda hymn to a vanished divinity, Skambha.
