Explore matters of the soul as Ma Udaysree explains how her Black Dot or Bindu Art relates to the Sri Yantra, a two-dimensional representation of the cosmos. Her art is also a symbolic representation of what you truly are. The Ishavasya Upanishad declares you are pure consciousness. Meditate it. Realize it. Radiate it.

I attempt to share with you, the viewer, zen-simple to the point consciousness-raising paintings and the grace that I received in creating this kind of art.
Reminiscent of SH Raza and Mark Rothko
My modern day paintings are reminiscent of SH Raza and Mark Rothko. Raza in his later years and upon his return to India became a master at creating bindu paintings whereas Rothko engaged in creating paintings with color fields.
The round bindu dot as seen in the sacred Sri Yantra itself symbolizes Infinity and contains the DNA of the cosmos. It is a symbol of source, purnatva or absolute fullness and completeness. It is achala, the unmoving (and unknown) core of our being, the Self, pure consciousness.
The color fields symbolize the colorful world of duality, the maya matrix, the mind, that which distracts us from the Self and creates depression, negativity, and powerlessness in us.
‘This is powerful art… I can feel my energy rising while I look at it.’ – Jay Wilder, Broker, USA
The sacred geometrical nature of my paintings is straightforward, to the point, zen-like minimalistic in design with vibrant and bold colors. They invoke simplicity, focus, clarity, powerfulness, sacredness, and expanded awareness. They connect you with your Self.
‘In the absence of strong sensations I’m left with a simple feeling of relaxation or peace. When I see the black circle I always think of The Void, or The Unknown, or Source… That untouched place within all of us that’s pure consciousness, that place where we all come from. I find myself going within.’ – Nadia Bertino, Realist/Surrealist Artist, Phoenix, AZ, USA
Transformation with the Bindu
My paintings are intended to help you come out of negative and conditioned states of mind. Meditating on the bindu helps dissolve these restrictions and sufferings, and potentially frees you of your painful past.
Meditation processes expand and raise your consciousness, bring you into a higher frequency to create your reality. Beyond this purification nothing remains but complete fulfillment and eternal bliss, your original nature.
‘If someone is seeing nothing in these works, then he is yet to get enlightenment and know what really is meant by a conscious reality than dwelling elsewhere. Excellent work… excellent rendering.’ –Hariraam Veeraraghavan, Artist, Chennai, India
