This beautiful scene could not possibly be found in this world. The Supreme Master Ching Hai is giving us a rare glimpse of some of the inner realms perceived by spiritual practitioners. Therefore the lotus flowers in the painting are supra-worldly not belonging to this secular world. Master made repeated trials to perfect the color of the water. The scenery is so tranquil and peaceful and the water is especially clear and pure as if it is capable of cleansing the most defiled material. Master said “I have never learned to paint. I sometimes admire other people painting water and I thought that they were great how could they portray the motion of the water? I never thought that I could do the same now. Also, the feeling of the water is different in both paintings. It is so dynamic in ‘Song of the Sea’ while it has such a tranquil atmosphere in ‘Heavenly Flowers’.
