Sri Chinmoy has said: "When it is a matter of my paintings, there is no mind, no form. It is all fountain-heart; the fountain is constantly flowing, spreading its beauty and light."

The following are Sri Chinmoy's own words concerning his artwork... images/pix jk 1

We all belong to one family, and we get tremendous joy when we share our heart's love and delight with the other members of our family. So that is what I am trying to do with my drawings.
A fountain is something that comes from within spontaneously, without any outer strain. It is something effortless, easy. Constantlyimages/pix jk 2 something within me is coming to the fore with infinite inspiration and with infinite dedicated service-light. That is why my paintings flow spontaneously from within.
Usually when I draw, I try to be in a contemplative mood - in a prayerful, soulful consciousness. I try to images/pix jk 3keep my mind as empty, vacant and tranquil as possible. The outer mind is like the surface of the sea, full of waves and surges; it is all restlessness. But when we dive deep below, the same sea is all peace, calmness and quiet, and there we find the source of creativity.
