As I remember Shakti in these trying times, I recollect our animated conversations and his cheerful visage. Travel well, dear friend.
A beauty polemicist, artist and writer Shakti Maira's practice was rooted in realism and incredibly diverse. He leaves behind a multifaceted legacy.
Maira saw himself as a realist, who explored and expressed the tangible. His observers saw a deep spiritual passion in his work, a Buddhism-inspired one.
For me, he still is, and this is-ness is not corporeal or even that of a spirit or soul. It is his quality of being that is in this, the ever-present now.
