Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007) painted in a spontaneous style he called Jharna-Kala, which means ‘fountain-art’ in his native Bengali.
Sri Chinmoy explains his intuitive approach to painting:
“I do not use the mind; I use the heart.”
“I try to make my heart a receptive instrument so that God, the Supreme Artist, can paint in and through me."
– Sri Chinmoy
