Sri Chinmoy’s Art

Sri Chinmoy calls his artwork “Jharna-Kala”, which is Bengali for “fountain-art.” The name reflects the spontaneous fountain of creativity he experiences and expresses through a wide array of media and forms.

“Both art and spirituality have a goal, and that goal is supreme joy, supreme delight. We can say that art is a tree of evolution. We climb up this tree in order to pluck the fruits of light and delight, and we climb down this tree in order to distribute the fruits of light and delight.”

– Sri Chinmoy
