Artist's Description

finally the new painting, man this took forever, 5 backgrounds, 2 arm positions and 3 different heads in different coverings, or not later and it is done.

The folklore is or the legend is … the great Yogi Milarepa spent many years living in isolation in a mountain cave.As part of his spiritual practice he began to see the contents of his mind as visible projections. His Inner demons of lust. passion and aversion would appear before him as gorgeous and seductive ’women" and as well sorrow, anger , fear , and so on . In the face of these temptations and horrors , rather then being overwhelmed, he would invite them in , welcome them . in the moment of surrender and in the brilliant light of pure awareness the demons no longer plague him " when ther resistance is gone, the demons are gone ".
