devotions: art is worship

Mountain Temples by Art Perspectives


"...in this wonderful new age, art is worship.
The more thou strivest to perfect it,
the closer wilt thou come to God.

What bestowal could be greater than this,
that one's art should be even as the act
of worshiping the Lord?

That is to say, when thy fingers grasp
the paintbrush,
it is as if thou wert at prayer in the Temple."

~Baha'i Writings
