Folk Series:Hari-Purusha (The Golden Body of the Lord)/Artist: Samij Datta

"The yoga we practice is not for ourselves alone, but for the Divine; its aim is to work out the will of the Divine in the world, to effect a spiritual transformation and to bring down a divine nature and a divine life into the mental, vital and physical nature and life of humanity. Its object is not personal Mukti, although Mukti is a necessary condition of the yoga, but the liberation and transformation of the human being. It is not personal Ananda, but the bringing down of the divine Ananda -- Christ's kingdom of heaven, our Satyayuga -- upon the earth".- Sri Aurobindo

Title: Hari-Purusha (The Golden Body of the Lord)/Artist: Samij Datta
Year: 2010/Medium: Pen & Ink on black paper


The Golden Fiddle and the Golden Feet
The Golden Lyre and the Golden Treat
Dancing in the eve-enchanted glory of the moon
With the minstrelsy of heaven’s Avalon
With bards and kings and their lonesome songs
Lovely to the eyes, clear was the sound
Of thousand bells that resembled the Song
Of Love that was coming from the Beyond.

- Joy Roy Choudhury, ArtVantage
