Sri Chinmoy completes his 27,000th Jharna-Kala painting at around 3:30 p.m. in the presence of 10 or 12 of his disciples.

On 12 May 1992, Sri Chinmoy offers Raisa Maximovna Gorbacheva, wife of President Gorbachev and the first lady of Russia, a painting of her choice for her private collection. She chooses his 27,000th artwork.

“I see in this painting the colour of life and the colour of hope. The green stands for life and the blue stands for hope,” Raisa Maximovna said, “And that’s what I treasure in life.”
