Sri Chinmoy visits Ottawa

On November 19, 1976, Sri Chinmoy visited Ottawa, Canada upon the request of his disciples to commemorate the second anniversary of his art, Jharna-Kala. It was in Ottawa that Sri Chinmoy drew his first of a presently 128,000 painting collection. The following is a transcript of this commemorative ceremony which took place in the exact spot, hotel room 322 of Sheraton El Mirador Hotel, where Sri Chinmoy first began his Fountain-Art.

Question: What prompted you to paint?

Sri Chinmoy: I do not know. There was no special necessity, it just came from within to paint and I went out and I walked along the street and found a stationery store and from there I got books and materials and I started drawing.
