In today’s fast-paced world, our ideas, actions and life styles are evolving.
Ahimsa; a concept which has stood the test of time throughout the course of history, is inspired by the premise that all living beings have the spark of the collective consciousness, therefore to hurt another being is to actually hurt oneself, since we are all part of this basic essence. However, today ahimsa or non-violence has other facets to it as well. Majority of the violence that we commit today is directed towards ourselves. Still, despite all the injustice that we unknowingly or knowingly tend to subject ourselves to, there is always hope, there is always ahimsa which will cast away the shadow of violence, because, if there is no darkness initially, there is no scope for illumination later. I hope my art serves as a symbol of the battle that you are fighting, with yourself.
STOP STRUGGLING. START BLOSSOMING.
