“Satyameva Jayate” (Sanskrit: सत्यमेव जयते satyam-eva jayate; lit. “Truth alone triumphs.”) is a mantra from the ancient Indian scripture Mundaka Upanishad. Following the independence of India, it was adopted as the national motto of India in May 1949. It is inscribed in script at the base of the national emblem.
Showing next to the image of the balance, my original signature as a ceramic artist. It means balance.
I was surprised to sign this as my name the day I made my first ceramic. Without thought, I just turned it around and made it at the base of the first pinched pot.
Growing up I was inspired by ‘being truthful’. Born on the same day as the father of the nation India. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.
I learnt through my journey to create more balance in life. Always balance between personal and professional life!
When I was teaching the path of Beauty/Sundram, I wished to add to the techniques of balance. I wished to add rope walking which i had once experienced in the neyyardam ashram in kerala (This is one of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres in South India http://sivananda.org.in/neyyardam/) Wished to learn myself and then teach the sport of balancing on the line/slacklining. It culminated when I returned to Delhi. There are free sessions available in Deer Park every Sunday (https://m.facebook.com/groups/151612535035099?ref=bookmarks)
There is a note worthy movie about this art/sport- The Walk. http://m.imdb.com/title/tt3488710/
I had gone for 12 years of intense spiritual practice away from the city I was born and brought up in. “Isn’t it needed to go into something with intensity?” Someone asks. It is, is my answer, if you want it bad and need it in your life. How else would I have become enlightened and then returned to the city I was born in. To my roots, to work and marry and lead a happy married life!
