Esoteric metaphysics posits the Mental Plane above the
Astral Plane. The Mental Plane is characterized by thought forms,
reason and intellect, while the Astral Plane is conceived as a
dimension of feeling.

In visualizations among Hindu yogic practitioners the Mental
Plane is seen as a realm where the forms of Gods and Goddesses
appear to the yogi.

'Meadows Mental' is a painting that imaginatively recreates this
realm of the gods, seeing them as winged angels.

Buddhist theology places a yet higher dimension above the
Mental Plane, calling it Dharmakaya. Each system of spirituality
has a different name for these planes of being.
