Artist's Description

Sundar Singh lived at the turn of the last century, his life was both remarkable and challenging, a disciple of Jesus Christ who chose the life of a Sadhu, (An Indian Holy man).
One time Sadhu Sundar Sing was travelling on foot with a Buddhist monk in Tibet, it was a bitterly cold afternoon and a real danger of freezing to death if they did not reach their destination, a monastery before nightfall. It was getting late when the two travelers heard a cry, it was another traveler who had slipped off the path and injured himself….. The monk said, “Do no stop. God has brought him to his fate. He must work it out himself.” Sundar Singh replied, “No, my brother. God has sent me here to help this man. I cannot abandon him.” But the monk hurried away along the path. Finding himself alone in the fading light Sundar Singh, undaunted went down to where the man lay, put him on his back with a blanket he turned into a sling, then struggled back up on to the path. It was a difficult business walking through the snow and there’s no record how long he walked, But eventually Sundar Singh saw some lights in the distance – it was the monastery……But as he walked further he came across an object partially buried in snow on the path – it was the frozen body of the monk who had left them, he had succumbed to the freezing cold. Sundar Sing eventually arrived at the monastery with the injured man, they had both survived – The physical exertion from simply carrying the injured man had generated enough heat to keep both their bodies from freezing.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it:
and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 16:25
