This small poem is based on the Adwait philosophy taught by Saint Dnyaneshwar. Loosely translated, it means :
There are waves and waves on the ocean
Their random actions, sort of continous chaos
The one who knows that it is water and water only
He really knows, he really knows, as has been said by Hari Mauli --- Unending waves, on the oceans roll Their random acts, chaos controlled Who sees it through, as water core Alone he 'knows', thus saints have told!
Painting has been a part of my life for many years since childhood. The magical combination of Nature landscapes and transparent watercolors is a constant source of amazement and inspiration! It was some years ago, that this fascination transformed into a serious effort to try to respond to the granduer of Nature with the spontaneity of watercolors. The resultant paintings here and the accompanying verses are but a small tribute to the inspirations and infinite colors Nature bestows upon us.
