View Full Version : Natural OM in reverse image calligraphy in human brain

07-18-2007, 12:49 PM
Om or Aum is of paramount importance in Hinduism. This symbol (as seen in the image on the right) is a sacred syllable representing Brahman (http://hinduism.about.com/od/basics/a/brahman.htm), the impersonal Absolute of Hinduism omnipotent, omnipresent, and the source of all manifest existence. Brahman, in itself, is incomprehensible; so a symbol becomes mandatory to help us realize the Unknowable. Om, therefore, represents both the unmanifest (nirguna) and manifest (saguna) aspects of God. That is why it is called pranava, to mean that it pervades life and runs through our prana or breath.

Interesting...I also read that Om was the sound that begun the cycle of life death and reincarnation.

But really I cant see what has it got to do with calligraphy...Unless you meant to post an image of an illumination about the Om.If that is the case please post it so we can admire your work.

Maybe you could upload a bigger picture directly to WetCanvas! so we can better understand. At the moment I am not sure what it is that you are saying and what relevance this has to calligraphy.

Yes, please post your work directly to Wetcanvas. Many people on dial up find it time consuming to open links, so to better assure you more views this is to your benefit. From the images that I see this has nothing to do with calligraphy. You might try the mixed media forum.
