Re: Purushottama radio show on Sri Chinmoys music
- Dear Sumangali,
I was delighted to read your message. I, too, was fortunate to attend
Purushottama's concert at the United Nations last year, and it was a
very moving experience.
In one of his earlier interviews Purushottama said something to the
effect that his band Aquarium bridges the gap between pop music and
spirituality - and that is exactly what he does, with his hallmark
ability to move lightly between the transcendent and the mundane
details of life on earth. Very much in tune with Sri Chinmoy's
philosophy on acceptance of life and transformation of life - let me
quote one piece from Sri Chinmoy's "Rainbow-Flowers":
"In the spiritual life, acceptance of reality is of paramount
importance - not rejection but acceptance. We have to accept the
world, we have to accept our life, we have to accept all our
weaknesses and shortcomings to transform them and illumine them If
there is no acceptance, we cannot perfect ourselves and fulfil the
divinity within us". (unofficial)
Also, I hear that this radio show will be repeated on Russian radio in
the USA (Davidzon radio), and the radio staff liked the program very
much another piece of good news!
Thank you once again for your inspiring and very creative messages!
