MANDALAS BY RAMPAL ~ The Tantric Spiritual Art of NADEAN O'BRIEN

Visit Mandalas By Rampal

I was born a creative child, but showed little interest in drawing or painting. My parents who met at an art gallery sustained hope that I would follow in the footsteps of my talented aunt, noted for her lovely landscapes. However, I had other worlds to explore before discovering the beautiful and sensuous meditative art of Asia and Tibet, as well as the work of Carl Jung, the eminent Swiss psychologist and artist, who introduced the "personal mandala" to the western world. Here was art with power, passion and purpose, the art of self-realization and enlightenment, an art form that caught my imagination and gave my life focus!

As I picked up my brush and began to paint, I became caught up in my own transformation as artist and healer. I expressed this metamorphosis on canvas through Tantric symbolism depicting the sacred union of our inner masculine (method) and feminine (wisdom) principles. The mystical "yab yum" (literally father mother) is often mistaken to represent human sexuality, but instead graphically portrays the inner wholeness or balance we must first achieve to realize our highest human potential. This message is most relevant today. I love both painting and explaining the meaning of my mandalas to receptive audiences.
