Re: Sri Chinmoy's Creative Flow!
- Dear Agraha,
I greatly appreciated you message on Sri Chinmoy's
achievement of 17,000 songs and your feelings about it.
The breadth of Sri Chinmoy's songs is truly matchless - they
encompass such a variety of aspects and feelings that
my mind cannot dare to grasp them. But I live very
close to them, singing them every day, sometimes for
over an hour.
I have been fortunate over the years to learn about
4,000 of those songs. I found it almost impossible
to learn the first 50 when I started many years ago,
but the songs themselves taught me how to learn them:
with the heart's embrace, rather than mind-power. Since
then it has become easier and easier, being carried
by the wonderful flow of the melodies.
By the way anyone interested can find much inspiration
and information on Sri Chinmoy's music at:
