I was asked to create a dynamic composition using Sanskrit calligraphy to convey the feeling of this beautiful prayer from the Brihadaranyaka Upanishads (1.3.28). In English, the meaning is:
From the unreal lead me to the Real
From the darkness, lead me to the Light
From death, lead me to Immortality.
A transliteration of the Sanskrit reads:
Tamasoma Jyotri Gamaya
Myritorma Amritam Gamaya
