The Mother’s paintings

The Mother’s paintings

Dear Friends,
The Mother once said that She began to draw at the age of eight and started to learn oil painting and other painting techniques when She was ten. She added on another occasion that at twelve She was already doing portraits. Vividly does one of Her disciples remember what She spoke apropos Her own paintings. Himself an amateur with the brush, he was acutely concerned with the thoughtless scatter of her best work over many countries. She mentioned a decade in which She had done Her finest painting and said that most of the pieces had been given away to various people at different times and in different places.
The disciple said: “Should we not do something to collect them again?”
The Mother calmly replied: “Why? Is it so important?”
“Surely, such masterpieces deserve to be found and kept safely. You had taken so much pains over them”.
“It does not matter”.
“But, Mother, don’t you think there will be a loss if they are not preserved?”
Then the Mother, with eyes far away yet full of tenderness for the agitated disciple, said in a quiet half-whisper: “You know, we live in eternity”.
Today, we take the opportunity of sharing with you some of the Mother’s paintings.
With warm regards,
Anurag Banerjee
