Light of Rāma - Original Artwork by Dorbe Holden

“It is with sincere gratitude that I thank His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda for the teaching of the Rāmāyana Mantra in the Spring of 2020. It helped calm me and entered my heart and body. Inspired, I began repeatedly writing ‘Rāma’ in a Rāma Nāma journal which led me to using the repeated word in line drawings. As I make each piece, my intention is to connect with God’s light residing in all things and beings, from the bees, to the trees, to the cosmos. My hope is that these drawings remind and inspire us to embody courage, focus, reason, right action, love and compassion. May the Rāma vibration in these pieces uplift us, our families and all communities. May we all be protected by the Absolute and the miracle of Rāma.” – Dorbe Holden
