She calls this art an open eye meditation.
What inspired Kavita to create Ram Ram Writing Art?
In many holy places in India we get booklets to write the name Ram 108 times as a part of chanting Ram naam.
Kavita’s Mother-in-Law used to have the habit of writing them. She has been doing that for many years and always practised with same devotion.
When Kavita’s Mother-in-Law passed away, Kavita and her family completed the incomplete books as a part of performing the last rituals.
And gradually Kavita developed the interest and could experience the immense joy of this meditation. She used to write more than 108 times and then to thousands.
Then she started to give the writing into an artform by drawing simple objects and then filling it up with word Ram.
Ram ram writing Art is called as Ram Lekhan Kala in Hindi.
And now with support of her family and community she organizes workshops in which this art and its benefits are taught. It is open to all age groups between 6-80 yrs.
She had done more than 40 workshops across the country in places like Bikaner, Jabalpur, Sambalpur and Jharsugda, etc. And promises to continue this in future.
In Hindu religion Lord Ram is incarnation of Lord Vishnu and son of King Dashrath. Victory of Good over Evil is the path shown by Ram. Ram Lekhan is one of the oldest ritual in Sanatan dharma.
As we all know Ram’s greatest bhakt Hanumanji had always the name of Ram in his words. That proves that chanting Ram is the solution to every problems. RAM RAM is also spoken and used to greet someone in India.
