The present painting is a donation of the artist. Proceeds collected from its sale will be used as a charitable contribution to the SYDA Foundation. The SYDA Foundation (Siddha Yoga Dham Associate) is the nonprofit organization that administers the presentation of programs and courses on Siddha Yoga meditation around the world. Siddha Yoga meditation stems from a nondenominational spiritual tradition dedicated to service and the upliftment of humanity.
Meditation produces a spiral of interior energy during its different states. When I enter a state of meditation it's as if I am in a jungle or a forest; the mind enters into a great exhilarated state, like an exuberant jungle where you can experience fear, desire, anguish--all types of emotions and feelings. When I begin to feel that there's a point of inner consciousness everything goes toward that inner space, that inner river. Everything goes to that place of quiet, that realm of tranquility.
Tomás Sánchez, in conversation with Edward J. Sullivan, ca. 2000-2003.
