Part VI — Stories about artists

TRN 34-50. Sri Chinmoy related these stories about some of the world's immortal artists in February and March 1980.

Two surprises plus one astonishment

Leonardo da Vinci, when a young boy, drew a picture of a strikingly powerful monster, belching fire and poison, then proudly placed it on a window ledge to surprise his father. When his father came home and saw the picture, he had the shock of his life. The monster was so vivid, so real!

Very shortly after that, his father got the opportunity to spring a surprise on the little Leonardo by enrolling him in an art class.

The Mother Earth did not want to remain in pin-drop silence. She astonished both father and son by making the son the most astonishingly immortal artist-man on earth.
