Transcriptions #19: Lokah Samastah

Prayer: Lokah Samastah
Transcriptions Series

Lokah Samastah is making its third appearance as a featured prayer within a painting in this series. It was the prayer I used in Transcriptions #1 and then again in Transcriptions #12. I am quite confident it will show up again as I continue exploring this series.


Transcriptions #19
In Process


As in most of the Transcriptions, I have loved covering the background canvas with paper for more texture before adding paint. In this painting, I cut the outer canvas cloth to create an open window revealing the handmade book.

The prayer, repeated on the cloth below the window, reads:

 "May all beings be happy.
May all my thoughts, words
and actions contribute in
some way to the happiness
of all beings."
