May these pictures draw many unto Thee, O Lord! But may my name be forgotten

Nama Article 30th May 2013

 

May my name be forgotten

 

There was once a gifted artist who painted truly beautiful I pictures. The people who saw his pictures would be drawn towards them as if by magic. They admired his talent, " What is there in these pictures that when we look at them, we feel blessed and purified. It feels almost as though we are being drawn closer to the heart of God.

 

But oddly, not a single picture bore the artist's signature. His friend asked him the reason one day, "Your pictures are so beautiful and naturally are admired by so many people! But, why is it that not one of these pictures bears your signature?" In answer, the painter took his friend to his studio. There, in a corner of the studio was a wonderful picture of the Lord Sri Krishna and underneath were written these words. "May these pictures draw many unto Thee, O Lord! But may my name be forgotten."
