Re: Mother Teresa and Sri Chinmoy
- Dear Beverly,
Maybe the very words "mother" and "children" make the heart melt. I
saw in my mind children sitting on the ground in the scorching heat of
Calcutta barfeet and hungry. Whose heart can be indifferent to that
I remember two years ago on Fathers Day celebration in New York Guru
drove around with his little cart and suddenly stopped at a certain
point and started telling a story about one meeting with Mother Teresa.
I had heard the story before but with such sweetness and affection Guru
I searched the Sri Chinmoy online library for it but didn't find it.
While searching I came across other moving questions and answers you
may have read already, maybe others would also like to read. They are
excerpts of an interview about Mother Teresa - the difference between
charity and service, superiority and inferiority, our wants and needs,
light and darkness, and also the relationships between possessing and
being possessed, simplicity and poverty, multiplicity and unity, prayer
"My sisters and brothers of the world,
Are we so blind that we cannot see
God's own Autograph
On Mother Teresa's forehead?
The sorrowful earth-planet
Has a special treasure-home,
And that home
Is your compassion-heart."
The today's poem from "My Life's Soul Journey" goes perfect with it.
"Be a simple life.
Earth needs your help.
Be a pure heart.
Heaven needs your help."
P.S. Thank you for giving me the inspiration to search the online
library. It is a good source of spiritual inspiration.
