तज्जपः तदर्थभावनम् ॥२८॥ 1.28 Taj-japaḥ tad-artha-bhāvanam.

“To repeat OM in a meditative way reveals its meaning.” ~ Carrera

“By constantly repeating that sacred sound with great respect and love and reflecting upon its meaning, one attains spiritual wealth.” ~ Stiles

Artwork thoughts:  This piece reflects the study of “cymatics” and the geometry of sacred chants.  Cymatics is the study of sound, energy, and vibration. Using a tonoscope, cymatics illustrate that when sound frequencies move through a particular medium such as sand, there is a corresponding geometric shape.  These shapes illustrate sound in the same manner as this piece illustrates the meaning of the sutras graphically.
