Of Aesthetics & Beauty: Wabi Sabi Ganpati

Updated: Sep 22, 2018





One of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing is perfect. Perfection simply doesn't exist.

Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist” Stephen Hawking.


Wabi-sabi is the quintessential Japanese aesthetic. It is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. It is a beauty of things unconventional.



Buddhism tells us wisdom comes from making peace with these marks, as they are intrinsic to our natures, and wabi-sabi can be seen as a way of practicing this peace and acceptance.




Ganpati with a broken tusk, ever so enduring and maybe telling us in his subtle way , it’s never going to be perfect.


Make Peace . Be unconventional . Awaken to new possibilities .
