How nice to hear from you again. I hope you continue to have a litte
time to share with us here. I really enjoyed this post about the music
cds by Sri Chinmoy that you purchased at August Celebrations. I was
not there that day when it was offered. It sounds wonderful to look at
as much as to listen to.

> Hi dear all,
> Last weekend I opened this special case. Its covers show the unique
> Guru´s handwriting -I fully agree with Sharani when she says that our
> Master´s handwriting expresses fondness- along with his drawings of
> delicate birds and flowers full of transparence and childlike concern.
> There are four colourful booklets in this case. Each one of them
> contains a coloured CD -blue, green, white and red- arranged in a
> light plastic pocket, with lyrics and scores. The cover of each
> booklet shows different moments of Sri Chinmoy singing all these
> songs in 1986 during a seven-hour meditation Concert in New York.
> Looking at this case of musical jewels, Guru´s words are echoing in
> my heart -¨please, get these songs for your Centres.¨ But at that
> moment of Celebrations and even for the last past weeks I didn´t
> realize how deep and special his gift was for us. It is said that
> Guru made this recording first accompanying himself on the harmonium
> in his house over the course of eleven days in 1986.
> As the true Master he is, Sri Chinmoy is always teaching spiritual
> newness and offering a brighter Light to the seeker beginner in me.
> The unofficial lyrics that follow I am sharing with you:
> -Inspiration brings aspiration.
> Aspiration invites the Lord Supreme.
> -O Lord of the universe,
> I bow to You
> With my devotion absolute.
> -If I get shelter at Your Feet
> My life will be blessed.
> -I know, beyond the mind
> I must go to conquer the mind.
> -Day and night I shall swim
> In the sweetness-hope-river.
> -Beyond the mind I must go
> To see my Lord Supreme.
> -I must learn, I must learn
> How to meditate on the World-Father.

> Congratulations and much gratitude to the devoted hands and hearts
> that created this case of Musical Jewels!:)
