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

    1. Mother has rightly said that Her paintings are eternal. Generations will certainly preserve it for posterity

      This sadhu is leaving for South Africa on March 12. We intend to present these pictures of the Mother before the devotees in the distant land.

      May the blessings of the Divine Mother and Sri Bharatabhavani be on all of us.

      1. > Mother has rightly said that Her paintings are eternal.


        Mother did not say her paintings are eternal. She says above “we live in eternity” implying that the artifacts produced in any single incarnation are secondary.


  2. Thank you for displaying the paintings by the Mother.Even though preserving them was not in the mind of the Mother, their preservation is useful in many ways.Let the foundation think of various ways of collecting,preserving and displaying them.

  3. The Mother’s paintings are the medium through which She poured Her Consciousness, hence there is such finesse in the paintings. They might have been nothing for the Mother but for us they are a treasure that we cherish. Thanks Anurag for bringing them to our knowledge.
