A little-known creation myth from India that offers rich descriptions, complex language, and bewitching truth is transcribed with calligraphy and adorned with watercolor illustrations in this meditation on the origins of the world. The account parallels stories of creation from Genesis and the Upanishads, but the distinctive details and ancient wisdom offer a unique perspective on the vibrating thread from which all life was born. The contemplative text and serene illustrations make this illuminated book a moving and thought-provoking reflection on the presence of the sacred in the world.
