"the Mandala Series"

These paintings are built up mainly from Arabic Calligraphy,
the well-known sentence from the Hadith,the
authenticated aphorisms of Muhammad,
"He who knows his self knows his Lord
(Man `arafa nafsuhu `arafa rabbuhu)."


In a few paintings, is added from the Bhagavad Gita, in Sanskrit,
Chapter Six, Verse 29,.""He whose self is established in Yoga,
whose vision everywhere is even, sees the Self in all beings,
and all beings in the Self (Sarababhutasthamatmanam
Sarbabhutani Chatmani !! Ikshyate Yogyuktatma
Sarabatra Samdarsana)."

The use of quotes from different traditions
comes to emphasize  the universality
of Truth.   We are all children of
the  Creator,  no matter to
what culture or nation
we "belong".
