Description

Om / Lotus
Sound of the wind
Blowing through the universe.
Breath trembling through me
Through you
Through ten thousand things.
OM ………. Life!
"Ten Thousand Things" is a Buddhist expression representing the dynamic interconnection and simultaneous unity and diversity of everything in the universe.
This design, using the ancient symbol OM, celebrates all life, which is dependent on the gift from the cosmos of air or breath. Air chooses no one, but vibrates through all fauna and flora and folks. We are all one as we breathe!
OM, the primordial sound (or cosmic hum) of the universe, is a Sanskrit expression of solemn affirmation, an auspicious salutation, "hail!", also representing everything. Each particle of existence is impregnated with energy and consciousness.
In September, 2003, astronomers at NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory found what can be described as sound waves emanating from a supermassive black hole. The black hole can be seen in the Perseus cluster of galaxies located 250 million light years from Earth. Andrew Fabian of the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge, England, analyzed the waves and announced, "We have detected their sound…." The sound he found (which is really the waves passing through gas near the black hole) translate to the note B flat, but it is 'humming' at a frequency a million billion times lower than we can hear. Indeed the OM is 'blowing through the universe'.
The lotus, considered a sacred lily, was a part of the art of the Egyptian and Buddhist philosophy. Traditionally the lotus represents the sacred center of the universe,
the core of our souls, the descent of the Infinite into the human heart and it is another symbol for the OM concept.
With roots in the pond soil (the waking state, the present), the stem moving through the water (the dream state, the past), in beauty the plant floats and blossoms on the surface (unconscious mind, the future).
In this design I drew the lotus within a circle of bamboo representing consciousness of the universe. (An ancient hermetic statement, “Reality is a circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is no-where.”) Cosmic consciousness realizes itself through the individual consciousness.
A lotus in full bloom represents living in the moment, yet I put seeds of the ‘past’ and ‘future’ on either side, for all moments are connected to where we have been and where we are going. Bamboo, a grass, lives under almost any condition and is found
on all continents, remaining green even in winter. Bamboo limits its height when it meets an obstacle, retreating and drawing its growth inside, thickening its base.
Bamboo is designated a ‘female’ plant and represents ‘yin’, the flexibility, strength, growth and resiliency of female energy inherent in both women and men.
“We have to live in harmony and peace…this is not a dream,
this is a necessity.” The Dalai Lama

The scroll is about 14 inches long and about 4.5 inches wide and are hung from a black nylon cord with a small brass bell, adding an additional 5 to 6 inches to this hanging. The petite silk scroll may be hung in your garden creating a quiet healing force. If exposed to the elements in time the silk may become 'earthtiqued' and can later be buried in the soil .
