November 19th was the 40th anniversary of Sri Chinmoy’s Jharna Kala – “Fountain Art”; this anniversary was observed around the world.

40 years ago Sri Chinmoy created this rose drawing in a hotel room in Ottawa (Canada), the first drawing in the West.

“Jharna-Kala” is the Bengali name Sri Chinmoy chose for his artwork. The English translation is “Fountain Art” – which signifies art flowing from the source of creation, flowing from the inspiration he receives in meditation.
