- Jul 12 2:16 AMDear Suchana, your post gave me so much joy. What an experience! I am
sure I would have been surprised as you were. May I add my little
experience I had some days ago?
After (still) painting walls and doors of our new Centre every day
which is actually a house I got into the bus late in the evening and
started reading a book by Sri Chinmoy. It's title is O My Mind.
It is all about the Supreme talking to the mind. I was wondering why
I had chosen this book when a voice from behind asked
quietly, "Excuse me?" I heard it but didn't react. The voice asked
again, "Excuse me." I turned around and an African man said, "I am
sorry I just read a few lines of the poems you are reading and I like
them. He asked, "Where can I buy this book?" I replied that I doubted
he can buy it because it was published in 1988 in New York. But I was
able to write the address of Sri Chinmoy's website in his cell-phone.
I told him that one thousand and some hundreds of Sri Chinmoy's books
are available on his website (what I am impressed about myself!!) and
that they would be expressing the same message in essence.
When I got off I handed him the book and he accepted it happily and
I am grateful to God that he uses me in some small but hopefully
important way - in this case to give a book by Sri Chinmoy to the man
who was so happy to receive it.
