Synopsis

Wonderstand contains sutras and insights on yoga and meditation. It is modern in the way that it inspires us, and at the same time, it ranges alongside many classic texts on the subject. The title Wonderstand is a play on words that speaks for itself and holds a promise, for the seeker, of both serenity and humor. The book includes two collections of texts: Aphorisms and The Dot and the Dots. The truth cast into idea looses its truth the mold takes hold Make me transcend my time my space and break my border to you In the loss of longing belonging gets lost - hence emancipation "Sohan Qadri's aphorisms are in line with the tantric tradition of India. Sohan's guru was a tantric, whom he met as a child. He grew up in that tradition in a small village in Punjab. The word tantra originally means to expand and through that expansion to liberate. When you expand your consciousness there can be no limitations such as taste or judgement. Everything there is, is part of the experience and part of you.

The poems of Sohan Qadri show us that "dot" of consciousness, bindu, which is present everywhere, without discrimination, in every thing and every one - you realise your self through anything...the dot is placed everywhere, between the lips of lovers, in the northern lights, among the galaxies, and yet we remain right here. I am a dot in the orgastic ecstasy so spiritual and so mundane at once I am a dot in the full, emptying itself, in the void, filling itself. 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 Sohan Qadri was a yogi, poet and a painter from India, who lived in Copenhagen, Denmark the last 40 years of his life.

Sohan Qadri is a yogi, poet and a painter from India who has lived in Copenhagen for the past 30 years. 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.
