120Re: Sri Chinmoy's Achievements
- Jan 13, 2003Dear Walter,
Thank you for your extremely, extremely inspiring message. I look
forward to seeing the areas you will be adding as well and also
areas others will add. I would like to add one field to your list,
Friend of Friends.
Whenever I need help, encouragement, inspiration or upliftment, Sri
Chinmoy is there for me--and I know he is there for all of us. He is
so utterly selfless and self-giving and his oneness with humanity is
so profound, that if anyone really needs help, he is there!
Recently I had a very sore disappointment. I tried very, very hard
to achieve something and did not succeed at all. The day before the
final message of refusal came, Sri Chinmoy said to me that I must
put into practice one of the great lessons of the Bhagavad Gita--
that we are entitled to our actions, but we must surrender the
fruits of our actions to the Supreme and then move onwards!
What a friend Sri Chinmoy is I cannot express in words! Imagine Sri
Chinmoy's love that he would realise the intense pain I would feel
and give me a specific solution to go beyond that pain -- and all in
advance of its happening!!!
With all of Sri Chinmoy's friends, no matter what status the person
has, his love is so healing, so perfect in the way it is offered to
I thank you once again, Walter, for your most inspiring posting.
