"Duality" Digital Painting with Mr. Vibhuti Dabral

Vibhuti Dabral
"Based on an idea by the ever awesome Mohit Sharma Trendster
Duality permeates our lives. There’s Prakriti and Purush, Man and Woman, Good and Bad, Light and Dark, and so on. This painting is heavily influenced by the ancient Indian philosophy of Dvaita and the myth of Adam and Eve, the serpent who tricked them into eating the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge. The division however, only signifies that all existence is one. The two are complementary. They complete Creation.
It is very probable that our creation myths originate in the visions the ancient shamans had when they ingested psychoactive substances as a part of a spiritual or recreational practice. These substances, also known as entheogens or hallucinogens are many, but the most common and popular remain: cannabis/marijuana, Psilocybin mushrooms aka magic/psychedelic mushrooms, Ayahuasca, Peyote (Lophophora williamsii, Datura (Datura stramonium), etc. In the 20th century, Lysergic Acid Diethylamide(LSD), and Dimethyltryptamine (DMT)[also a part of Ayahuasca, a brew traditionally used in some Amazonian cultures for psychoactive purposes] became widely known and available.
Many have speculated that our ancestors routinely experimented with such psychoactive substances. In all probability, psychedelic mushrooms like Amanita muscaria and cannabis must have been very popular with them. These substances, when ingested give the persons who consumes them very vivid and intense visions, which led to deep and profound spiritual insights. The sense of wonderment and wisdom they had after such experiences might have led them to formulate the seeds of our collective mythology.
There is a mention of psychoactive substances in Indian and Persian traditions. In the Indian tradition, a mysterious drink or brew by the name of Soma is mentioned in Rigveda. It is described as the drink of the gods. In that text, it has been elevated to the status ‘god for gods’, and a position higher to that of Indra and other gods. The Rigveda, which has a complete section devoted to Soma, states:
We have drunk Soma and become immortal; we have attained the light, the Gods discovered.
Now what may foeman's malice do to harm us? What, O Immortal, mortal man's deception?

Aaj phir us dar se lautna hua.... - मोहित शर्मा (ज़हन)

Aaj phir us dar se lautna hua….
Ek Raah mujrim tang thi,
Do musafiron ka saath chalna hua,
Ek pyaar betarteeb yun…
Kitne shikven aur ek muflis shukriya,
Aaj phir us dar se Lautna hua !

Koshish rahegi umr bhar,
Ek naam par nikle dua…
Jin kamro mey Tanhaai thi,
Wahin yaadon se milna hua..
Aaj phir us dar se lautna hua !

Jo vaayda aankhon mey hua,
Veeranon mein Armaano ka majma laga
Parda naa hone ka malaal unhe,
Jab shafaaq-O-shabhnam thi darmiyaa,
Aaj phir us dar se lautna hua !

Khudgarz kab patjhad laga,
Saawan kasam dene laga…
Ek khwaab dil ke kareeb tha,
Khwaishon mein jo shaheed hua…
Tab himmat se haara karte the…
Ab kismet se haare jua…
Aaj phir us dar se lautna hua !

Jiske shafugta hone par jashn tha,
Jaane kahan wo gum hua,
Jinse rooh wabasta thi,
Kis mod wo Tanha hua,
Aaj phir us dar se lautna hua….


आज फिर उस दर से लौटना हुआ

आज फिर उस दर से लौटना हुआ
एक राह मुज़रिम तंग थी,
2 मुसाफिरों का साथ चलना हुआ,
एक प्यार बेतरतीब यूँ
कितने शिक़वे और एक मुफ़लिस शुक्रिया,
आज फिर उस दर से लौटना हुआ

कोशिश रहेगी उम्र भर,
एक नाम पर निकले दुआ,
जिन कमरो में तन्हाई थी,
वहीं यादों से मिलना हुआ,
आज फिर उस दर से लौटना हुआ….

जो वायदा आँखों में हुआ,
वीरानों में अरमानों का मजमा लगा,
पर्दा ना होने का मलाल उन्हें,
जब शफ़ाक़ ओ शभनम दरमियाँ
आज फिर उस दर से लौटना हुआ

खुदगर्ज़ कब पतझड़ लगा,
सावन कसम देने लगा,
एक ख्वाब दिल के करीब था,
ख्वाइशों में जो शहीद हुआ
तब हिम्मत से हारा करते थे,
अब किस्मत से हारे जुआ
आज फिर उस दर से लौटना हुआ

जिसके शगुफ़्ता होने पर जश्न था,
जाने कहाँ वो गुम हुआ,
जिनसे रूह वाबस्ता थी,
किस मोड़ वो तन्हा हुआ?
आज फिर उस दर से लौटना हुआ….
