According to the spiritual science provided in sacred Scriptures such as the Rugveda, the purpose of life is to progress spiritually and all of man’s endeavours should be aligned with this supreme goal. This also applies to the fine arts where an artist (painter) should primarily use art as a means to grow spiritually and not merely for financial gain, fame or a worldly cause. His art should emit spiritually pure vibrations, which increases the spiritual purity in the environment and motivates the observer to practice Spirituality.
The Maharshi University of Spirituality and SSRF have undertaken extensive research into making spiritually purer art and training artists towards this goal. Firstly, an artist should be able to perceive subtle-vibrations and analyse whether they are positive or negative through his sixth sense. Having such an ability is the outcome of regular and intense spiritual practice under the guidance of an evolved spiritual guide. By refining the shape and altering the colour in the artwork, under the guidance of a spiritually evolved guide, the artist’s goal to increase spiritually pure vibrations is achieved. This perspective naturally limits the artist to paint only a few types of subjects that will help society spiritually. The subject of the artwork could include spiritually positive designs for clothing or a picture of a Deity. Accordingly, many pictures of Deities have been digitally painted at the University, some taking over 10 years to refine. It has been observed that aura and subtle-energy scanning instruments and those who have an advanced level of sixth sense are able to detect the increased positivity of the painting at every stage of its refinement. In this series of articles, the process of how to create spiritually purer art is discussed and elaborated upon. If artists were to have this knowledge and practise it, the positivity in society would increase considerably.
