Editorial Reviews


''Bonshek's book succeeds in concisely rendering the vast body of vedic knowledge of which Maharishi is widely regarded as the foremost modern proponent as well as in illustrating the wealth of practical benefits this knowledge can provide the arts and society in general. Bonshek's work moreover has set the stage for other artists and critics to apply this knowledge in the production and appreciation of the arts. As her books demonstrates, an original grasp or clear understanding of Vedic wisdom depends not on how you intellectually interpret pure consciousness-as the history of Vedic scholarship attests, critical interpretation usually leads to distortion with unfortunate social consequences-but rather on how you embody it. Bonshek's title tells it best: it depends not on waving the colors of the small self, but on mirroring pure consciousness.'' --- William S. Haney II Consciousness, Literature and the Arts, Vol: 5, No. 1, April 2004

''Remarkable work of synthesis indeed and interdisciplinary achievement notable contribution to literary and art history and aesthetics.'' --- Prabuddha Bharata, Vol: 109, June, 2004

Format: Hardcover
In current art debates, no-one has really considered art in the context of a complete theory of consciousness. This book does this and more. It should challenge any reader who is serious, passionate and convinced about the continued value of art and culture in our global markerplace.
