Callicott Antahkarana 1.jpg

Antahkarana is a pastel created by Burton Callicott, a member of the Memphis Lodge of the Theosophical Society in America. It hangs outside the Meditation Room in the L. W. Rogers Building, the headquarters of the TSA in Wheaton, Illinois. The display caption states, "Shows two triangles, the higher and the lower aspects of our nature. A shaft of light rays down, connecting the two. This ray is the antahkarana, the bridge between the divine Self and the personal soul."

The artist donated the work in the year 2000, when he was 93 years old, along with another work, Mandorla. The dimensions of the pastel are 26 x 18.5 inches, or 66 x 47 cm.

Antaḥkaraṇa is a Sanskrit term sometimes translated as "rainbow bridge."
