The Nonduality Highlights - 





You are the sky. Everything else, it's just the weather.


~Pema Chodron



Meditation is not an activity. It is the cessation of an activity.


~Rupert Spira



I asked the river
About its destination
And came out lucky:
It babbled about nothing
And never came to a point

" Show me something now, in your experience, that is at distance from yourself,
and made out of something other than yourself. Love is the natural condition of
all experiences. There is never any separation, there is never real duality ".

Mukti or liberation is our nature. It is another  name for us. Our wanting mukti is
a very funny  thing. It is like a man who is in the shade,  voluntarily leaving the
shade, going into the sun, feeling the severity of the heat there, making  great
efforts to get back to the shade and then  rejoicing, "How sweet is the shade! I
have reached  the shade at last!" We are all doing exactly the  same. We are not
different from the reality. We  imagine we are different, that is we create the 
bheda bhava [the feeling of difference] and then  undergo great sadhana
[spiritual practices] to get  rid of the bheda bhava and realise the oneness. Why 
imagine or create bheda bhava and then destroy it?

"Compassion has nothing to do with achievement at all. It is spacious and very
generous. When a person develops real compassion, he is uncertain whether he
is being generous to others or to himself because compassion is enviromental
generosity, without direction, without ” for me” and without ” for them”. It is
filled with joy, spontaneously existing joy, constant joy in the sense of trust, in
the sense that joy contains tremendous wealth, richness.”

"Rashani's cards are a rich harvest of unique images and deep wisdom. They are
sacred maps for transformation, helping us shift our consciousness, our lives, our
world. They offer nourishing guidance for a sustainable future."
-Dr. Margaret Pavel, Ecopsychologist


As a young girl Rashani was drawn to and inspired by the silkscreen prints and
serigraphs of Sister Corita, later known as Corita Kent. She loved the interplay of
words, images and color and how Corita integrated social and spiritual messages.
It was Rashani’s first experience of “engaged art.” 


In 1967, Rashani studied with one of Corita’s students, Sister Monica Julie, when
she was the only non-Catholic student at
Notre Dame High School in Belmont,
. Her passion for calligraphy and collage was ignited that year and has
been expressing itself unstoppably ever since.


For the past forty-four years, Rashani has explored, and been transformed by, the
alchemy of images, words and color, this ineffable trinity which became her main


In 1984 she went to visit Corita, to thank her for being such a profound influence
in her life. Corita looked quietly and carefully at Rashani’s bulging portfolio and
after about twenty-five minutes without having said a word, she simply nodded
her head and smiled. “YES,” she whispered, “One day the world will be touched
by your gifts.”
