  Fanaa  
SUFI mystics speak longingly of fanaa or ‘dissolution’, the exalted state in which the seeker finally becomes merged with existence as his ego fades away, dissolving into the cosmos. In this subtly shaded mandala, the strident tones of the ego have gone, leaving behind a vast, impersonal presence that radiates gently out from the single point at the centre, and ebbs back in towards it again, pulsating softly with limitless, yet relaxed energy. The one who has dissolved knows that he is no larger than the central point, but neither is he any smaller than the totality.

Within this vast presence are many signs of yin and yang, showing that all opposites have been transcended, the tendency to attach with either hot or cold, good or bad, white or black, pleasure or pain that forms one of the chief crutches of the ego, is finished. This is a space of ultimate relaxation.
