Why your living room needs Bindu Akash
Bindu Akash represents the value of life blended with simplicity. The purpose of existence is summed up in a nutshell. In taking you through the elements of this painting, you will find the meaning behind each Bindu.
As you can see, there is a primary and large black Bindu resting in the centre background of the painting. This black Bindu represents the concentration of all energy and creation. Furthermore, the four colored areas surrounding the Bindu represent the fundamental elements of nature, that is, Akash, Agni, Bhoomi, Jala, and their equal divisions represent their collective balance in nature. As the universe always finds and works towards balancing all elements, life unfolds and unveils its mysteries accordingly.
According to Raza, all colours encompass or are bound together to become black. One may ponder over the five colours that eventually dissolve into what one can perceive as nothingness.
Here, the Bindus in five different colours encompassed inside the bigger black Bindu, gives away two of many interpretations. Firstly, all the coloured Bindus represent the five fundamentals of life, while their individual representations in a circular format symbolise complete, balanced individual entities. Secondly, the Bindus encompassed inside the bigger black Bindu represent that all these together make up the cosmos.
As you begin to look closely, you can play with the creativity of this artwork, allowing it to derive the various concepts of the universe for you. In capturing the essence, this artwork not only adds meaning to existence but also evokes a sense of calm when placed in any setting. The Bindu Akash is set to provide a distinct mood of harmony in the environment it is placed.
