Rainbows are magnificent! So regal in appearance and intensely loyal as the glory between rain and sun. The stream of colours across the sky are so luminous and radiant I am always filled with wonderment about that illusive pot of gold. I’m really struck by it’s simplicity and the pantomime of childish delight it ignites in me. And as a yogi I am particularly inspired by the brilliant devotion and unwavering focus the rainbow serves at that exact time when light and water intwine. This for me represents an exquisite expression of unconditional love. Like the rainbow, the yogi’s role is of devotion and focus. From there all is possible. The old yogis tell us, that with ‘focus’ we will achieve a life of PURE BLISS! The work of Mark Mawson is truly poetry in motion… it’s as though he’s capture a rainbow reaching it’s place of ‘pure bliss’. Enjoy… and blessings to Mark Mawson for his extraordinary vision!

  1. Gorgeous! I’m a big fan of rainbows also. In Buddhism they say that we should view all phenomena in the same way as we view rainbows – as temporary appearances brought about by various causes and conditions – like the sun and the rain. If we can see all of life like that then we can appreciate what is beautiful without becoming attached to it or disturbed when it disappears. So rainbows are our teachers as to how things really exist and how best to relate to them! Cool huh?


  2. Blissful and beautiful! I also love how one has to look up or out to the horizon to view a rainbow


  3. Glorious words and images. Both reflect the vibrant energy of our universe.
