“My art philosophy is to be able to help various charitable and not for profit organizations raise funds using my artworks. Being a Jain, I strongly believe in ‘Live and Let Live.’ Since plants have life in them- ‘Reforestation’ is a very noble act for me. It will help bring ecological balance on earth and will help survive various species of animals as well.

In short, this painting is showing that all living beings have the capacity to become perfect soul (Siddha) - ‘the God.’ All living beings go through the 4 cycles (Gatis) of life (Infernal, Human, Hellish and Celestial –being).
