Fifteen years passed since the death of his sons, when old Dhritrashtra found himself unable to bear the burden grief any longer. He wanted to retire to the forests and spend the remainder of his life there. Accompanied by his devoted wife Gandhari, he spent three years of peace in the forests. One day, there was fire in the forest, which slowly enveloping the hermitage. Dhritrashtra knew it was time to leave the body and travel further on. He sat down in his hermitage, facing eastwards in yogic posture and calmly gave himself up to the flames. Thus ended the life of the elder son of Vichitravirya and Ambika, born blind.

Having chosen oil as his medium of expression, the artist has successfully translated a moving scene on a static two dimensional surface. The tranquillity of the forest in the background is in total contrast to the fiery fire in which old Dhritrashtra immolates himself. He uses wide and long brush strokes for the fire in different hues of yellow and orange; for the trees around, he uses dabs of colour, slowly blending them with small strokes.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
