Art as Medication and Meditation

As I got back from my sister’s home, I was affected with tonsillitis after more than 15 years. It was very difficult to have tonsillitis during summertime as I have to take only hot drinks and hot food. I get phlegm too, so cannot take any cold foods to soothe the sore throat. I was too tired too that I didn’t felt to go to doctor and take antibiotics. So, I felt to do voice rest.

I thought of doing some art to keep me distracted from throat pain and tiredness. Made the following:

Tantric art – Mahasudarshana
Tantric art – Narasimha Yantra
Acrylic painting on white cardboard piece

I love the inner silence and guidance of being while I draw and paint. It is a beautiful meditative experience which works quicker than medication πŸ™‚
