Over three millennia ago, long before Mozes, Mohammed, Christ and Buddha came into existence, wise men gathered on the Indian riverbanks to discuss existential theories. The Hindu religion stems from their knowledge, wisdom and tradition. Although the Veda's document Hindu philosophy extensively, a written history of Indian society has not been kept. The Hindu scriptures are many times more voluminous than the King James Bible.
They thought profoundly about the world around them. Noticing all things decay and subsequently be recreated they reasoned that behind the veil of the visible world that had been pulled over their eyes there had to be an invisible source giving birth to all life. They named this source Brahman.
Based on the observation that the visible, tangible world is constantly changing and therefore temporary, they decided that also all our desires are temporary and changeable. Relentlessly persuing their fullfillment had to lead invevitably to desillusion and that, they concluded, was the cause of all human suffering. True peace of mind was thought be achieveable only by controlling desires and focusing the mind on Brahman.
To the present day countless religious teachers (guru's) and their followers occupy themselves with endless scrutinization of the subtleties and ostensible paradoxes of the Vedic teachings.
How does this age-old wisdom compare to the body of knowledge and possibilities available to use through the current standard of (communication-)technology? On this canvas, wisdom as old as time, symbolized by an old religious man, touches technology of the computer- and internet-age. Electronic components such as printed circuit boards, transistors, capacitors, diodes and resistors have been attached to the frame and woven into the canvas.
