Coming Soon: The Bhakti Coloring Book!

Coming soon from Sounds True Press: The Bhakti Coloring Book: Deities, Mandalas, and the Power of Playful Mediation.

The term “bhakti” refers to devotional love, and the sublime madness of spiritual practice that looks like a divine romance between one inspired soul and the universal creator. Bhakti is personified by an array of revered deities who represent universal virtues and archetypal energies we all share. The Bhakti Coloring Book was created to help you begin to activate the transformational currents of this sacred power in your own life—even if you’ve never considered yourself an artist.

With The Bhakti Coloring Book, Ekabhumi invites you to a serious yet thoroughly enjoyable practice. This comprehensive guidebook begins with 20 stunning images of deities paired with 20 mystic diagrams to color and meditate upon as portals to new insight, transformation, and, ultimately, self-realization. The second section discusses the creation of mystic artworks and the making of art as a spiritual practice, as well as delving into some of the symbolism of the ancient images.

Making sacred art is a type of meditation

explains Ekabhumi, “helping us to come into stillness, focus our attention, and align with the principles portrayed in our artworks.” Is there a virtue or trait that you would like to cultivate or strengthen? Are you looking for a way to deepen or expand your spiritual practice? Do you feel compelled by the beauty, mystery, and power of the mystic arts of India? If so, The Bhakti Coloring Book gives you a resource you will turn to time and again for inspiration, support, and self-expression.
Scheduled to be published in the summer of 2018, and available world-wide.
