Question: I understand that your art is referred to as Jharna-Kala. Can you please tell me the significance of this phrase and how you relate it to your art?

Sri Chinmoy: Jharna-Kala means “fountain-art”. A fountain is something that comes from within spontaneously, without any outer strain. It is something effortless, easy. Constantly somebody within me is coming to the fore with infinite inspiration and with infinite dedicated service-light. That is why my paintings flow spontaneously from within.
