The Sacred

 

 

"This is indeed India; the land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty, of splendor and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and giants and Aladdin lamps, of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle, the country of a thousand nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history, grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of tradition, whose yesterday bear date with the moldering antiquities of rest of nation - the one sole country under  the sun that is endowed with an imperishable interest for  alien  prince and alien peasant, for lettered and ignorant, wise and fool, rich and poor, bond and free, the one land that  all men  desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would  no give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the  globe combined."

 Mark Twain, Following the Equator, 1897.

 

 

 

 

One  of  India’s  greatest  gift  to  the  humanity  at  large  is  its  spiritual  base.  The  spirituality  of  India  having  a  distinct  and  separate  voice  of  a  religious  India.  Mark  Twain  foregrounded  this  aspect  of  India  way  back  in  1897.  But  I  go  back  even  more  in  time  when  I  pick  from  the  Yoga  Sutra  of  Patanjali  which  is  almost  2000  years  old.  In  the  compact  196  observations  on  the  nature  of  consciousness  and  liberations  the  Yoga  Sutra  becomes  increasingly  relevant  in  contemporary  times.  Though  brief,  the  Yoga  Sutra  manages  to  cut  to  the  heart  of  the  human  dilemma.  But  this  is one  of  the  texts  of  Indian  thought.  We  have  in  India  innumerable  texts  which  deal  with  the  many  aspects  of  India’s  Spiritual  ethos.

From  the  Vedas  which  is  the  wellspring  of  Indian  wisdom,  to  the  epics,  like  the  Mahabharata,  the  Ramayana,  to  the  Gita,  the  adoration  of  the  bhakti  poets  the  king  of  them  all  Jayadeva  who  with  a  single  work  the  Gita  Govinda  brought  in  Sringara  or  pleasure  into  bhakti  to  a  scale  unparalled. 

 

The  spirituality  of  India  has given the world philosophy, gyana  or  knowledge  rasa  or  flavour  , the concept of Shunya and Bindu and has transformed herself into a dizzying technological hub today of software, engineering, medicine and information technology.

 

 

From the pan Indian tradition of Vedic India where notions of aesthetics steps out from the precincts of vision and saundarya or  beauty to the vast expanse of woven folk and tribal traditions, to  contemporary fusions,  India abounds in  both.

 

From  transcendental consciousness and perfect bliss to the shrunken soul , from the sublime mountains the kulaparvatas to the intoxicant globalized cities, India is a centre of lurid realities and unrealities where there exists a peaceful balance between the many fractures.

 

A  nation which spans moments of time. From  Alladin’s lamp and Tigers and Elephants ,to mythic cultures and Cultural dialogues , From cultural transgressions , to religion bending , from ancient transcendental wisdom to new ageism. It is where tradition encounters modernity, where cultures fuse into newer ones , where identities  do not progress along a simple, straight line; where the ancient and cyber- space coexist , local traditions and newly designed spaces collide, and they allow contemporary art production , spiritual healing and body work, folk art and handicrafts, cinema and pop to coexist. Where progress itself is more than the sum of advancement.  Emerging as a multi-cultural,  multi-traditional India ,from a bowl of spiritual ideas, Buddhism, Gandhi Vedantic thought  to the largest bowl of technological outsourcing , to consumer markets. Modern India is a nauseating wonder between poverty and riches, characterizing herself in this  inherent duality and polarity of the spiritual and modern , India abounds in  many  moods and many flows.

 

The  exhibition---  The Sacred --  will  foreground  the  notions  of  philosophy,  beauty,  rituals  and  traditions,  where  spirituality  becomes  a  way  of  life.  It  is  in  India  bi  polarity, duality  multiple  religions  reside  with  complexity  and  simplicity.
