In Art and Meditation, Anagarika Govinda has shared his profound insights into an artist's creative process and has explored the similarities between true art and true religion. His main interest is the artist who works from the basis of his enlightenment and sees the world around him with changed eyes. For the author, meditation is an art while art is a kind of meditation, which transcends purely aesthetic values and points to lofty moral and religious ideals. "Complete ending of the self," says the author, "is the ultimate aim of both art and meditation."
