'SATORI VANA' and the Circle of Life
December 19, 2020
Satori meaning ‘enlightenment’ or ‘awakening’ in Buddhism and Vana meaning ‘ultimate bliss’ in Sanskrit encouraging one to sit on the seat of absolute peace and bliss by embodying their highest or supreme self.
Samcara Vana II left on a note; after enlightenment we become fully aware of our divinity,
the moment we realise ourself, none of these external changes and disturbances affect us,
we remain peaceful and blissful, revelling in our own self.
I now went to capture what ituvana means by feeling blissful or "whole"
In Zen, enso (円相, "circular form") is a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create.
This symbol commonly comes to represent enlightenment, limitless strength, the universe, or mu (the void or no-thing).
We decided to create circular spheres which represented "wholeness"
and use backdrop colors inspired by the 'Mandala'
Mandala or 'circle' is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. The circular design symbolises the idea that life is never ending and everything is connected.
Blue representing emotional healing, inner peace and meditation
Orange representing creativity, self-awareness, intuition and transformation
Then, bringing to awareness six realms of self development inspired by The Vedas
her peace and happiness is not dependent on anything other than her self
love in it's purest form has to be universal, not concentrated in one
or not being involved with the affairs of the world
an evolved person is replete with cheer and joy though she may express is discreetly
the mind being calm and composed, that generates energy and power within her
becoming bright, active and dynamic
or the very backbone of character and conduct of the evolved
