Parikalpan yog is based on the analysis of various direct and indirect mentions, translations and essays on Art and design, in our ancient texts and traditions.
Any art or expression that is led by a rational, holistic and responsible approach can lead to self realisation, of both the artist and viewers, which is in essence, the first step of Yog (integration with self and nature).
Art is a thorough yet minimal medium of connecting us with ourselves, holding the capacity to transform our lives. Any artwork that can form a connection with its audience, is capable of strengthening our bond with our own emotions, thoughts and perceptions.
Man's emotional health grows in tandem with his experiences, which often allows negative emotions to create an imbalance within our minds and energy systems (chakras). This can often manifest into physical symptoms, therefore a responsibly created and carefully curated artwork can play a pivotal role in its viewers well-being.
The meditative process of viewing these artworks, brimming with positive intention and emotion can help us address these imbalances and impurities that unknowingly and unbeknownst to us, settle into our lives.
