A study piece for MIND - white art piece featured in Sacred Scripts book. This study piece was added to at a later date with a black background.

At the centre of the circle is the word ‘mind’ scribed in Uchen script illuminated with a fine white outline. This is surrounded by a circle of Petsug script which translates as:

“The past mind has ceased, is destroyed; the future mind is not born, has not arisen; the present mind cannot be identified.”

Inspired from ‘A Record of Mahāmudrā Instructions II.’ Written by Pema Karpo (1527–92).
