This is one of my more recent Tantric paintings, a thangka rather than a mandala. It depicts the Tibetan deity Samvara in sacred union with his consort Vajravarahi, which through the ages has become one of the most powerful images of universal oneness to exist. The name Samvara means supreme bliss, the bliss that is the fruit of Tantric meditation.
For some time, I have been captivated by Samvara, wanting to paint him in my own modern style. More than an attempt to copy another's art, "Samvara Supreme Bliss" has evolved out of my own practice of Tantra Yoga and reflects the feelings of bliss and higher awareness possible with such practice. It was over six months in the painting and is a joy to behold!
