The Buddha said, "Those who rejoice in seeing others observe the Way will obtain great blessing." A Sramana asked the Buddha, "Would this blessing be destroyed?" The Buddha replied, "It is like a lighted torch whose flame can be distributed to ever so many other torches which people may bring along; and therewith they will cook food and dispel darkness, while the original torch itself remains burning ever the same. It is even so with the bliss of the Way." - Sutra of 42 Sections

"This piece was created in February of 2013 and took about a month from sketch to finish. The MINISTRY OF PUBLIC ENLIGHTENMENT design features the praying hands of a Buddhist monk, draped in prayer beads and holding a candle lit with the Buddhist flame. This design really encompasses the philosophy behind the CRYPTIK MOVEMENT and everything I hope to accomplish, to LIGHT A FIRE!!!" - Cryptik

ABOUT Cryptik:

The Cryptik Movement is a public art campaign dedicated to helping humanity evolve towards greater awareness and understanding through the use of compelling, iconic imagery that demands both scrutiny and reverie.

Cryptik creates from a palette of wonder, where all science, math, and true art spring from equal mystery. His is a clear-eyed art practice of more questions asked than answered. The Southern Californian creative’s intricate, almost trance-inducing works—be they on mammoth walls, slap stickers, or hanging in galleries—find voice in images of spiritual universality. By his hand, Eastern philosophical thought and mantras hypnotically merge with the black letter bombing of cholo writing. The ancient and the sacred marry in a modern quest—through art—for conscious awakening and awareness. - Jamie Maleszka (Mass Appeal)
