From Darkness to light..

My thirst to sketch wasn’t fulfilled… I wanted to do something more..  So I thought of another theme to work on.

It didn’t take me long..  Apparently today is Easter, the day Jesus Christ rose from his death. Resurrection. Well that was the theme.. but rather than resurrection, what I wanted in my heart was to show a transition.. from death to life.. from darkness to light.

During my schooling, everyday activities started with a morning prayer. A prayer in which the first three line was taken from one of the primary upanishads, the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad written by Yagnavalkya.

It went on as …

om asato mā sadgamaya
tamaso mā jyotirgamaya
mṛtyor mā amṛtaṁ gamaya
om śānti śānti śānti

Meaning..
Lead Us From the Unreal To the Real,
Lead Us From Darkness To Light,
Lead Us From Death To Immortality,
Let there be peace peace and peace everywhere.

All these lines, convey of transition.. of resurrection of the human self, as we progress in self realization.And so, without further adieu, I started sketching the concept.. just the second line.. Lead me from Darkness to light..

And here it is…

Up the stairs..and into the light...
