Tat Tvam Asi

...or "Thou Art That". I learned of the significance of this concept back in undergrad when I took a course on South Asian Art. It was one of my favourite courses because of the professor, the material and the fact that we learned about the relationship between religiousity and art in a South Asian - mostly Hindu and Buddhist - context. "Tat Tvam Asi" is a Sanskrit (an Indian classical language) phrase that unites the individual Self with the greater Self. Oh and by the way, the words "Tat Tvam Asi" are hidden somewhere in the drawing above. A beautiful word search? Enjoy!
