Product Details

This poster is a visualization of the Gnostic Text "The Thunder, Perfect Mind" which was a 1st Century manuscript found in the desert at Nag Hammadi, Egypt. The visualization takes the opposites from the poem and creates a mandala for inner meditation.

'Thunder Perfect Mind' is a marvelous, strange poem. It speaks in the voice of a feminine divine power, but one that unites all opposites. One that is not only speaking in women, but also in all people... It's a poem which sees the radiance of the divine in all aspects of human life, from the sordidness of the slums of Cairo or Alexandria, as they would have been, to the people of great wealth, from men to women to slaves. In that poem, the divine appears in every, and the most unexpected, forms....

'Thunder Perfect Mind' may have been written in Egypt. It's probably written by somebody who knows the traditions of Isis, knows the traditions of the Jews. It shows that this movement grew up in a world in which Jewish, Egyptian, Greek, Roman traditions are mingled and mixing and well-known to many sophisticated people.'

-- Elaine Pagels, from her interview in PBS's FRONTLINE's.
