The story of the ‘Swim to the Other Shore.’ T-shirt
The evocative, surf themed T-shirt captures the moment when you stand on the shoreline, board in hand watching the waves roll in.
The phrase ‘swim to the other shore’ is open to interpretation – to some it means quite literally swimming out to a different shore to others it is a metaphor on being independent and following your own heart. However as with all things Earthmonk there is always a spiritual meaning layered within the artwork. The phrase is inspired by the Dhammapda, a collection of sayings of the Buddha that is in verse form and is one of the best known Buddhist scriptures. We interpret this about the calling of the spiritual initiate to the ‘other shore’ where ones own unique journey of spiritual connection occurs.
