FOUNDATIONsacred space for self transformation

Patanjalir atanjali, the great Indian sage and scientist, is widely acclaimed as the father of yogic sciences. In this exquisite artwork from a mural inside Isha Yoga Center's Spanda Hall, Patanjali is symbolically depicted in the famous half-man, half-snake form, indicating that he has risen above the duality of life and attained to ultimate oneness, and in doing so has opened the door for others to achieve the same. This style of painting - a dying art from the temple town of Guruvayur in the state of Kerala - uses only vegetable dyes and earth extracts. Measuring 140 x 12 ft, this mural masterpiece is the largest of its kind in the world.
