I am first and foremost from Bharata (shown below), a collective region of culture, research, and technology which informs my entire lived purpose.
Because of the sharpened intent of colonizing forces to destroy and whitewash all symbols of Bharati wealth and technology, many Bharatis do not know of, acknowledge, or fully understand the shared Bharati experience.
I can trace the last hundred years of my lineage to a town in India known as Bodh Gaya. The city of Bodh Gaya holds and protects the seed and seat of Buddhism. Deep in the folds of Bodh Gaya rests the Bodhi Tree, under which Siddhartha Gauthama, the first Buddha, meditated into a state of holiness to become a Bodhisattva.
A Bodhisattva possesses the willpower and sustained energy to achieve pure spiritual, mental, and physical bliss and stillness, but instead chooses to focus their energy towards bringing the evidence of meditative enlightenment to those whose spiritual energy needs nurturing and direction.
This intention of the Bodhisattva will give you insight into how I go about my life.
I am by no means a practicing Buddhist in the same way that Earth is in no way in the same state as the time of Siddhartha, but the power to attain Nirvaena is stored in my DNA and I will channel it’s direction towards designing spaces and structures to bring us each closer to the spiritual stillness we once came from.

AND IN GENERAL MESSING WITH “RULES”, “BOUNDARIES”, AND “SPACES”
