Welcome – my Name is Narada Das.
Among other things I am an Artist, Mystic, Musician, Poet, and Website Maker.
I live in the Byron Bay area of north eastern NSW Australia.
I have many websites. This site is simply a little information about my work and links to my various projects. Hopefully soon I will get back here to bring my own site up to the standard of the ones I am now creating
Some of my favourite creations ~
My latest creation is a discussion Forum, Multi-Author Blog, Video Library, and growing collection of articles about every aspect of Sacred Geometry.
My work is embued with the Sacred Geometrical awareness I have developed over decades of personal exploration, artistic creation, and meeting and learning from some of the worlds most inspiring teachers. To me Sacred Geometry is not just about geometry. It is about patterns of all kinds, the perception of them, and the nature and meaning of perception itself.
My Artworkings in the Gallery at ByronNow
Byron Now is a social networking site that I set up for Byron Bay locals. Unfortunately it has not been utilised much, perhaps tthrough lack of promotion on my part. I may get back to it at some point but locals seem to either be happy passing the time interacting on Facebook or else avoiding computers completely. Oh well… – anyway … the multi-media Gallery page there has a slideshow of some of my artwork as well as a few local treasures such as Lily Moses, and Martin B, and Howie Cooke
The Bird logo on the left came through as a symbol for the Bird Tribes flag of Peace and you can learn more about it on my main information site at BirdTribes.net. Like many of my designs it is available as a T-shirt and on other products at my CafePress shop here. It came through with a song called ‘the White Bird Song’ which is the first track on my album ‘Jewels & Flames’ which you can listen to and order here.
The gold geometry on the top left here is a photograph of an unusual projection (or shadow) of a 4 dimensional cube in 3 dimensions. This shape is one of my first creations/discoveries that came out of a teenage interest in Stereo Drawing.
It is now available as a hand made gold plated pendant from my One Earth Emporium site.
Creating this artwork was a major initiation in my development as a Sacred Geometer. It taught me many things over the 700 hours of designing it, and it continued to reveal to me many more insights through ongoing contemplation of its structure.
For instance… one of my favourite revelations:
Around the outside of the circle of the elemental correspondances I had placed the astrological wheel of the solar system as it will be on the December solstice of 2012. I had orientated this circle in the traditional western astrological way by putting the first sign Aries at the left side of the mandala.
But it occured to me that since the whole point of including this moments astrological shart in the mandala was the alignment of the sun with the centre of the galaxy, it would make more sense to rotate the heavens around until the sun was between the galactic dervish on the top left of the poster and the earth at the centre.
The orientation was somewhat arbitrary anyway and this would make no difference to the geometries involved. I rotated the chart into the new position and was most please and surprised to find that now Saturn, the planet traditionally associated with Time and with the outer boundary of the visible to the senses Solar system was now centred at the very top of the circle inside the dodecahedron, symbolising to me the moment when the geometries of life align with the central axis of creation.
My Work ~
In the face of the current intense Global Crisis (and to ignore this crisis is I feel an act of extreme unawareness bordering on schizophrenic denial)
I feel that my work is to -
1) popularise Sacred Geometry in a new way because of its deeply transformative power to the human consciousness.
2) to promote awareness of the Native American story of the Great Peacemaker and the BirdTribes. This story is not only beautiful and inspirational, it also has a deep connection to the foundations of our most powerful governmental systems – systems that have been perverted into a nightmare of fear and control but that in their original essence contained wisdom and compassion that deperately needs to be re-integrated into modern society.
Please visit some of my work linked from here. I hope you will find it inspirational.
