An exhibition of Sri Chinmoy's Jharna Kala art is currently on display in central Ottawa.
The exhibition held at 54 Elgin at Queen includes a selection of Sri Chinmoy's unique artistic creations, which have been widely admired for their vividness, spontaneity and spiritual feeling. The exhibition will be held until April.
“When it is a matter of my paintings, there is no mind, no form. Something within me is coming to the fore freely, effortlessly, with infinite inspiration…spreading its beauty and light so that my paintings flow spontaneously. When I paint, I try to go deep within to the source of creativity where it is all peace, calmness and quiet."

"AUM is the soundless sound. It is the vibration of the Supreme. When one hears the soundless sound within, when one identifies oneself with it, when one lives within it, one can be freed from the fetters of ignorance and realise the Supreme within and without."

A painting of Sri Chinmoy
"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.
He began painting on November 19th, 1974 in Ottawa, Canada. Over the next 33 years, Sri Chinmoy produced a prolific output of paintings.
One art critic commented on the paintings of Sri Chinmoy:
"Instead of seeing the world as a concrete, solid body where things are separate, Sri Chinmoy sees the world as a unity where all things seem to move together. The paintings are physical manifestations of his inner meditations. They show a higher level of consciousness.
