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.
