Dhyana means contemplation, reflection" and "profound, abstract meditation". The root of the word is Dhi, which in the earliest layer of text of the Vedas refers to "imaginative vision". This term developed into the variant dhya- and dhyana, or "meditation". Dhyana is taken up in Yoga exercises and is a means to samadhi and self-knowledge. The international yoga day commemorates this eternal science and practice of Yoga that originated in India 5000 yrs ago. The whole world has identified YOGA and practices of Dhyana to India and also practices its various forms. The exhibition Dhyana from the permanent repository of the National Gallery of Modern Art showcases YOGA and DHYANA practices and its association through modern art by various artists. As you flip through the pages of this virtual exhibition you will find the correlation, coexistence, and influence of this ancient tradition on the art of many artists. For many artists their art practice itself is a DHYAN or meditation for them, the purest form of this and a level of highest consciousness is present on their canvases.
