The Power of Meditation

Welcome to another enlightening episode of The Unlimited You, where the exploration of personal growth and spirituality takes center stage. Today’s guest is none other than the multi-talented Krishna Chandra Das, Palehorse, an artist and meditation teacher whose journey is nothing short of inspirational. With over two decades of experience in the world of art, Palehorse has evolved from a commercial illustrator for major brands to a creator of sacred art deeply intertwined with the practice of meditation.

From Aesthetic to Esoteric: Palehorse’s Artistic Evolution

Palehorse’s artistic journey is a fascinating tale of transformation. Initially drawn to the aesthetics of Thai sacred art, his encounter with the story of the monkey deity Hanuman at a temple in Thailand sparked a profound shift in his perspective. This experience planted the seeds for a growing fascination with spiritual themes, leading him to eventually focus on creating sacred art and sharing the practice of meditation.

The Art of Storytelling and Metaphor

Palehorse emphasizes the power of storytelling and metaphor in both art and religion. He sees them as vehicles for conveying esoteric wisdom, much like the lessons learned by the Karate Kid through seemingly mundane tasks. By engaging with epic tales and sacred narratives, Palehorse believes we can gain insights into how to navigate life’s challenges, a theme that resonates deeply in his artwork.

Art as a Path to Spiritual Awakening

For Palehorse and his brother, art has become a means of cooperating with their soul’s awakening. Their creative process is infused with intention and spiritual practice, from chanting mantras while painting to focusing on the presence of deities. This approach imbues their artwork with an energy that transcends the canvas, inviting viewers to connect with something greater than themselves.

The Catalyst of Change: Psilocybin Mushrooms and Meditation

Palehorse’s exploration of meditation was catalyzed by his experiences with psilocybin mushrooms. These profound encounters opened his mind to the possibilities of meditation and spiritual growth, leading him down the path to Kriya Yoga and the Ananda community. His story is a testament to the unexpected ways in which life can guide us toward our true calling.
