A portrait of my daughter Devi, meditating on White Tara.

I'm interested in making portraits of people in meditation. I like the idea of visually ex loving-kindness. The waves in the background reference Patanjali's Yoga Sutras "Meditation is stilling the thought waves of the mind". There are always obstacles in one's meditation practice. This is represented by dragons guarding the pearl of wisdom. The pale clouds rising above are symbolic of a peaceful mind. Lastly the many dots shimmering in the sky radiate in all directions as Tara's kindness radiates in all directions.
