Depression/Determination OR Surya/Chandra

Depression/Determination. Depression is personified as a woman shrouded in darkness and gloom, determination as a man against a backdrop of the sun. The one-wheeled chariot signifies we can respond to our life events in any way we choose.

The uninitiated might ask: "What is it like to be in the clear white light?" The young aspirant may reply, "It is as simple as sitting in a darkened room, closing the eyes in deep concentration and finding the entire inside of the cranium turning into light."
