Question: Why is it that you have undertaken the creation of such a vast variety of paintings?Sri Chinmoy: I have not undertaken this project; I am just an instrument of the Supreme. An instrument has no choice of its own. It is the player within me who wants to express himself in myriad forms and shapes. I am just an instrument.
