At my ideal exhibition, there would be large painting of a naked yogi with long, matted hair, seated in full lotus - right foot on left thight, left foot on right thigh - eyes closed in unwavering meditation. Beside his graceful form glow the dying embers of a large log: behind him, the red eastern horizon. Another painting would depict a tantric adept, wearing a deep red shawl and bone ornaments. plunged in the darkness of new-moon night. As he smokes hemp from a water pipe, his face is illuminated by the charcoal fire that blazes up as he takes a powerfull draw. His half-closed eyes, inebriated with love for Goddess Kali, are indrawn in expression like a mother bird hatching her eggs. This exhibition would truly kindle spiritual awareness and profound aspiration, just as gazing at a wax fruit can make thirsty for a delicious ripe mango."
