Transcriptions #11: So Hum

14” x 18” x ¾”

Original mixed media painting on canvas

The focus of this painting is on the So Hum mantra, which symbolizes our oneness with the Universe, the constant support available to each and every one of us, and our connection to the Infinite Source. We are all connected.

When translated from Sanskrit, So Hum means “I am that” (so = “I am” and hum = “that”). So Hum reflects the sound of the breath and can be used in meditation by having your mind recite the phrase: 

“Sooooo…” when inhaling.
And “Hummmmm” when exhaling.

The painting features a wide canvas cloth segment designed with folds to house the two cloth scrolls. The 5 rectangular elements below, along with the flowing lines of text, in Sanskrit and English transliteration, form the 108 repetitions of the mantra. The number 108 has been considered a sacred number since the time of the ancient yogis.

The painted cloth and the scrolls are stitched onto the textured stretched canvas. The sides match the painting and the date and signature can be found on the side of the canvas.
