Question: Do you have a sense of where your art will go from here? That is, in what direction?Sri Chinmoy: Right now I have no idea. Only I can say that this art is another form of dedication to the Supreme. My spirituality, my art, my poetry, my music, all my creative expressions form a family, a spiritual family. The members of the family will take me wherever I am needed to be of service to aspiring mankind. Some seekers get more inspiration and more aspiration through paintings than through poetry. Others get abundant inspiration through poetry, through meditation and so forth. Each form of spiritual dedication will be able to serve certain groups of aspiring souls. Whichever form of spiritual expression a seeker finds most helpful in order to increase his aspiration, he will be able to get from me.
