Shirdi Sai Baba Painting

This Shirdi Sai Baba Painting was provided by Vikas Nandlal from Andheri (w) in Mumbai India. The words of Vikas Nandlal about the painting I sketched on paper and then retouched significantly in Adobe Photoshop software. While trying to observe carefully physical features of Saibaba, I have attempted to include little imagination element with colors to try replicate a model kind of effect, as divinity is formless and with conviction that one day Baba would give darshan to devotee in the form they adore the most .Though I wish I could give it a dark background frame or something instead of white but not so much conversant with Photoshop. click on the image for a larger view If you wish to contact Vikas Nandlal, you can do it by e-mail - [email protected] or [email protected]

Dattatreya Quotes and Thoughts

Today is Dattatreya Jayanti Lack of enquiry is sure means to destruction. On the other hand, one who is given to deliberation, triumphs and attains what he wants.

Persons incapable of reflection are like the frogs in the well. The frogs in the well know nothing good or bad and perish in the well itself. Similarly, in the well of universe, there are persons, who are totally ignorant who go through birth and death repeatedly and who do not know that is good to oneself. Because of lack of discrimination, they see pain as pleasure and pleasure as pain and undergo torment of transmigration. Worldly bonds cause distress again and again but people do not discard them. Man undergoing repeated birth and death is akin to the ass, which despite being kicked again and again by her seeks the company of she-ass.
