Question: What message or messages do you offer to the world at large through your creation?

Sri Chinmoy: I offer the message that there are many, many more worlds apart from this physical world that we see around us, the world we are in. If we do not see a particular thing in this world, this does not mean that the thing does not exist. There are many worlds of existence. There are many things that I have painted which people may take as abstract ideas or abstract paintings, but they are not abstract. In some other world they are absolute realities. Just because you do not see something right in front of your nose that does not mean that particular thing does not exist. We have to enter into the inner plane of consciousness where it does exist, just as we have to go to a particular place on earth where a certain thing is available. If something is not available in America, that does not mean it does not exist at all. It may be found in one remote corner of the world, in India or somewhere else. I wish to tell all art lovers that there are many, many worlds apart from this particular world, this planet earth where we are living. If we see that certain creations are not familiar to us, we should not say that they are not real or that they do not exist. They do exist, but we have to go to the right place in order to see them.
