One glance at the painting and one realizes that there is nothing inessential or inexpressive in this painting. The impact is accentuated by the technique of oil painting that makes it come across as a flesh and blood quality.

Shankaracharya, with his disciples sits in a peaceful location. That he is preaching is evident from the gesture of his hand and the manuscript held in the other. The expression of tranquility is matched by the expression of concentration on the faces of his disciples. They all wear simple ascetic attires; what distinguishes the preacher is the brocade cloth covering his head and falling in his lap. All have markings on their only adornment. There is reflection and reverie, not dramatic action. One senses the interaction of the figures across space.

Not only the subject but the background has a mystic edge too. The orange skies convey dawn and hence the hazy shading. It is noteworthy that the group sits not under the shade of the leafy tree but has sky for the roof. A solitary cottage indicates the remoteness of the place. The pond in the foreground also has a peaceful quality to it with lotus flowers and leaves floating and swans enjoying the cool waters.

A religious theme is imbued with natural serenity to produce a masterpiece such as this.

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.
