Sources for quotes
- Hi, everyone,
I have seen so many wonderful selections from Sri Chinmoy's writings
on this site. Sometimes there is not a reference for a selection
(title of the book, at least, or preferably, title and page, or some
way to go find it), and I am left wanting that reference so that I
can go and look around in the source material for more of the same.
Also, as a guy who works with numbers and tries to get everything
accurate, I sometimes just want to make sure that the transcriber has
the exact text before I copy it and send it off to others.
Some time ago, I had the text of one of Sri Chinmoy's poems, and this
text came to me with a comma in the wrong place (different than Sri
Chinmoy had written), but the comma completely changed the meaning of
a key phrase and made it a different poem. It was an important poem
that I recited a lot, and now that I have it correctly, the phantom
comma sometimes still pops into my thinking as I go through the
In any case, respect for such a great figure as this suggests respect
for proper presentation of his material. It is so easy to add that
reference from a book or from http://www.srichinmoylibrary.com
Like all of you I am just an enthusiastic visitor to this site, and,
without overdoing it, I would like to see titles and sources along
with the text, to fill out the picture of this great man's work.
