Stake Your Claim
In today’s world, as there is no universal agreement on what is art, can confusion in defining the artist be far behind? Since the true artist is fully aware of the misconceptions that abound about art, he must stake his claim, avoid getting trampled in the rush to judgment in the territory of taste, and show himself and the world that he does indeed have a nugget worthy of appreciation.
Lord Krishna, teacher of the world, says:
“Be equally poised in success and failure; this is called yoga.”
“Therefore, always perform actions which should be done, without attachments; for, by performing action without attachment, man attains the Supreme.”
—From the Bhagavad-gita
