Editorial Reviews


''But you don't have to know the secrets of Tantra to experience his poems - they will inspire you and convey its universal message anyway.'' -Swami Janakananda (Meditation teacher, yogi and writer).

''Many thanks indeed for sending us the remarkable book 'Wonderstand' by Sohan Qadri. We are big fans of Sohan''s paintings and now we are big fans of his poetic voice too!'' -Lorna Howarth (Co-Editor, Resurgence Magazine).

''...a garland of pearls of wisdom like Rubayat (sufi poetry), a collection of gnomic verse where the world of meaning is pressed in minimum of words. Every piece is commentary on Life at the abstract plane and gives at the same time an easy understanding of life's rules for an ordinary man.'' -N. Meera Raghavendra Rao (The Newspaper The Hindu).

''No doubt, Qadri reveals his capacity for presenting themes marked by prophetic and sublime quality conveying an overwhelming interest and deep import to an individual soul - In all these aphoristic quotations, we notice Qadri's breadth of intellect. Wonderstand has very high qualities of proverbial expressions written with great precision and clarity. Sohan Qadri's eyes are fixed upon the sober enquiry of truth - '' -S. Kumar (Cyberwit).

On Qadri's art: ''Sohan Qadri with his art liberates the word meditation from its fashionable taste and brings it back to its proper origin, uninfluenced by Western propaganda, misunderstandings and corruptions.'' -Heinrich Boll (German writer and Nobel Prize Winner).

''Sohan Qadri, in a few words, believes in an inner and outer sphere in the life of man. Striving to establish contact with this world within, with one's true self, he sees as utterly essential for all of us. His art belongs to something of the most refined one can perceive, something which touches ''the ultimate secret''. We can experience his works directly and with strong presence, and thereafter we can slowly decipher and extract their secrets.'' -Virtus Schade (Art critic and writer, Copenhagen).

''There are artists. There are tantriks. There are tantrik artists. As far as I know, there are no tantrik yogis who are artists as well. Sohan Qadri is an exception. He is an exceptional artist.'' ---F. N. Souza (Indian painter and writer)

About the Author

Sohan Qadri was a yogi, poet and a painter from India, who lived in Copenhagen, Denmark the last 40 years of his life.
His paintings result from states of deep meditation, and are informed by the colors of India: luminous, dye-infused works on meticulously serrated paper. Over his long career, Qadri has interacted with a wide array of cultural figures including Surrealist painter Rene Magritte, Nobel laureate Heinrich Boll, and architect Le Corbusier. Boll once said, ''Sohan Qadri with his painting liberates the word meditation from its fashionable taste and brings it back to its proper origin.'' He has had more than 70 exhibitions in the United States, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
