Saṃsāra; Etymology and origin "he flows into himself," to perpetually wander, to pass through states of existence. Saṃsāra or Sangsāra (in Tibetan called 'khor ba (pronounced kɔrwɔ in many Tibetan dialects) literally meaning "continuous flow". It is the repeating cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth (reincarnation) within Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Bon, Jainism and Yoga. In Sikhism this concept is slightly different and looks at our actions in the present and consequences in the present. These concepts will inform my new work that looks at the aesthetic spaces in between each casting, and the melding together in a conversation of diverse threads of mysticism, ceremony, ritual and spirit to create domestic altarpieces for personal use.
