In a world where few feel totally at ease, Sri Chinmoy offers a plan for world and soul survival. Sri Chinmoy's deep love for God is known worldwide. Long revered as a spiritual force for peace at the United Nations, this humble God-directed author asks people of this planet to look within, to rediscover the essential truths of spirituality that have so blessed his extraordinary life.
The name Chinmoy, meaning full of divine consciousness, bespeaks the mission of this deep soul. He lives to be an unconditional instrument of God. He trusts God. There is a sympathetic oneness with God and people throughout his reflections. He becomes sad when he thinks of how people have used religion to separate themselves from one another.
Sri Chinmoy suggests that the spiritual life's goal is self-transcendence. While man reaches up to God, God in turn reaches down to man. The connection occurs and deepens as each person aspires to open himself to the Light of God, the Will of God and a higher state of consciousness.
Sri Chinmoy believes that God will save our world. The Light of God is stronger than the forces of evil. While he has deep confidence in God, his tranquil reflections portray an urgency which calls out to mankind?: Wake up! Grow deeper! Love in such a way that God's Will be done.
Sri Chinmoy's glance expresses more than all the words in the world. Following the Indian tradition, he is one who ever revitalizes. The mutual friendship that unites us is proof of the deep resonance that can exist between initiates devoted to the cause of spirituality on earth.
