Bala discovered his true passion for art as a student at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland Oregon in 1988. Where he attended for a couple of years studying various disciplines in the fine arts. Manuel Esquierdo was one of his early mentors in the field of sculpture.
Excelling in all mediums, Bala continued to produce paintings and sculpture in his own studio spaces and had the opportunity of mentorship under the world renowned bronze caster James Hansen. (It is very interesting to note that their is a parallel vision shared by these two artist who came together by destiny.)
Bala's quest for spiritual truth led him to India and around the globe wherein he has alligned with his higher calling as a priest and healing arts facilitator.
As a visual artist Bala has developed a unique vision of channeled 'Galactic Glyphs' which are a form of 'Light Language' that carries coded information for each individual to integrate in their own way.
As a Bhakti Yoga teacher and a facilitator of 'Reconnective Healing' Bala incorporates this level of vibration into his work, as tools for awakening.
