New Pamsula series

The pattern in this series is based on what is called a "rakusu" in my Zen tradition. It is a piece of cloth one sews before receiving the precepts and a dharma name in Zen. In Sanskrit the word means literally "sully", "defiled", "discarded" or "disgraced". The word pamsula has the implication of taking something that is worthless and transforming into something rich and wonderful. In the days of Buddha, it is said that materials called Pamsula were taboo for use in society. These included materials used for shrouds covering the dead, those gnawed on by rats, or menstrual rags. Monk's collected these and made their robes from them. So pamsula is thrown away rags made by thrown away people. It is using the food you have to make a meal. So this pattern is meaningful to me, but while it may not mean the same thing to others, I feel that as aesthetic works of abstract art, they also stand on their own.
