Jan Karpíšek: Arunachala, acryl on canvas, 95x105 cm, 2008

Original painting by Jan Karpíšek "Arunachala" refers to the holy mountain in south India, by which Sri Ramana Maharshi lived. Arunachala mountain represents Shiva, terminator of illusion that we are bodies and minds. Shiva is a master of all yogis, holy Lord and the most inner Self, except Him nothing exists and ever existed. Aum Tat Sat :) Even the tears of suffering pumpkins originated in the most Firm Mountain! Be aware that you're not a craving pumpkin! :) More about Sri Arunachala.
