This Painting reflect the power of "heat".In Vedic religion and Hinduism, it is used

figuratively, denoting spiritual suffering, mortification or austerity, and also the

spiritual ecstasy of a yogin or Tapasa.In the yogic tradition, tapasya may be translated as

"essential energy", referring to a focused effort leading towards bodily purification and

spiritual enlightenment.This Painting implies a self-discipline or austerity willingly

expended both in restraining physical urges and in actively pursuing a higher purpose in

life. Through tapas, a yogi or spiritual seeker can "burn off" or prevent accumulation of

negative energies, clearing a path toward spiritual evolution.Monks and gurus in Hinduism,

Sikhism and Jainism practice tapasya as a means to purify and strengthen their devotion to

God, practice a religious lifestyle and obtain moksha, or spiritual liberation.This is

closely associated with meditation, fasting and the practice of yoga. Meditative tapas

involves focusing entirely upon God, the Supreme Brahman and ignoring all environmental,

artificial and other provocations or distractions. In the purest state of meditation, no

thought save that of God must occupy the processes of the mind.

A tapasvin also practices brahmacharya, endeavoring to control all his or her biological

instincts, functions and senses. Tapasvins reduce consumption of food and drink steadily,

using their mental, intuitive force to reduce their biological needs. Ahimsa and

vegetarianism, pure non-violence towards all living beings is practiced to eliminate anger,

destructive impulses and avoid the foolishness of hurting others.

Fasting is accompanied by avoiding all cooked foods, especially spices and meats. Only

fruits and roots are considered acceptable, and one may strive to reduce the quantity one

has to consume.Its create a positive environment and energy around environment.
