Is Art Ultimate?

Novels, epics, poems, stories, dramas, dance, painting, architecture, sculpture, song, videos, and film are often thought to be the best ways to convey truth. Unfortunately, most current art forms - no matter how subtle - purport that sense gratification in some form or other is the highest human achievement. In a 1966 Back to Godhead article entitled "A Revival of Vedic Arts" Visakha devi dasi wrote, "Vedic art reflected this highly evolved culture. The ultimate goal of this art was to please the Supreme Lord, Krsna, and the artists accomplished that by attracting people to Krsna, by heightening people's awareness of God."
