Compassion illuminates love and love fuels compassion. This is the Phoenix fire turning its blazing cartwheels across the generations. Through numberless saints and martyrs, hate and fear, born of ignorance and suffering, are extinguished in courageous self-sacrifice, and thereby transmuted through compassion into strength and love. "Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that..." - M.L.K. We breathe in suffering and breathe out peace. This is the essence of a Tibetan meditative practice known as Tonglen. This painting is my breath. It is my prostration to the saints and martyrs, to the freedom fighters, to the Phoenix born of love and adorned with the radiant wings of compassion. This is the indomitable spirit. The Phoenix shall rise eternal.
