LILALOKA : Why this name for our new performance art company?
LILA: An old Sanskrit word which means play, richer than our word, it means divine play, the play of creation, destruction, and re-creation, the folding and unfolding of the cosmos. Lila is, free and deep, is both the delight and enjoyment of this moment. It also means love...Pronounced lee-lah.
LOKA: (Sanskrit: "world"; "realm"; "abode"; "dimension"; or "plane of existence") from loc, "to shine, be bright, visible."
Creating world's through creative play...beautiful!
