This painting appears to be most ordinary ‘ordinariness” is exactly what Master intended to convey to us through this painting. Supreme Master Ching Hai is revered by all sentient beings in the universe and countless people are envious of Her role. What they do not know is that Master lives solely for the benefit of all other beings making countless personal sacrifices. She has virtually no desire for worldly fame on the contrary She longs for a simple peaceful and carefree life. To convey Her feelings in the painting She painted in a relaxed and casual way as though She were in Her own home. The painting technique and the composition of chrysanthemum is so carefree and natural yet a faint beauty lingers in the heart of those who view it.
