Drawing this image was a very emotional experience. I created it for my partner who has read everything Yogananda wrote and much of what has been written about him.
Although I have read the “Autobiography of a Yogi”, I never really liked it as much I feel I should have. Anyway, I wanted to create an image of what he might look like if his spirit were appear after his passing.
I had no idea it would be a profoundly moving experience . I felt so much love and kindness as I drew this, it was quite humbling. I spent a lot of time weeping while drawing this image.
