Photograph of Tibetan Singing Bowl
From the CD PATH TO SHAMBHALA
Inspired by the last solar eclipse of the past millennium, this artwork includes a photograph of a 13th century Tibetan Singing Bowl attuned to the deity Vairocana - if you look closely you might see several faces within it - which miraculously appeared in the photograph. The mystical corona of the sun seemingly revealing the aura of our sun's spiritual body embracing the entire solar system which is seen reflected in the colours and spiritual vibrations of the sounding bowl creating a temple of light. A Swastika can also be made out moving in the direction of the ancient Bon - whose Legend of Olmo Lung Ring inspires the main part of the music on this CD - which refers to Swastika Mountain or Mount Kailas.
