Description

Discover the heart-opening path of bhakti yoga

In the yoga tradition, bhakti is the path of the heart. Devotional art is an important part of this path, as sacred imagery can bypass the mind and open the heart directly. In The Bhakti Coloring Book, artist and scholar Ekabhumi Charles Ellik invites you to cultivate your own devotional bhakti practice through meditative coloring.

Forty hand-drawn images, representing various regional and historic styles, adorn the pages of this book, including deities, saints, and images such as yantras, or geometric representations of a deity’s consciousness.

For every illustration, Ellik offers guidelines for transforming your coloring activity into an enlightening spiritual meditation. You’ll explore:

  • The deities and divine principles they exemplify
  • The symbolism of each image’s details—geometric shapes, postures, animals, clothing, and more
  • Traditional colors, their meanings, and how to use them in the illustration
  • An invocation or mantra to hold as you color
  • Contemplative guidance for extending your practice beyond the pages of the book

“Of the four yogic paths, bhakti yoga is by far the most popular—and for good reason,” writes Ekabhumi, “It is the easiest and arguably the most fun!” For experienced artists and novices alike, this book offers an enjoyable entry into a powerful practice.
