Wednesday night in Zurich
- We live in a time of change and anyway to meditate and be in group is
a place of change in itself. You come here to be changed, the person
you are..for ever be changed. I like the sweet laughters, the carefree
laughters that come out of yourself, the moment you see how many miles
you already inwardly run on this path together with your Master Sri
Chinmoy. It makes surely hundred thousands of miles, but each time you
stand in front of the group, you realize that it is the very first
mile, it is as you have done no miles at all. In front of the Master
a disciple cannot shine. Only Guru is the ever blossoming Sun.
"Swan, my swan, how did you attain God-Realization?
How did you perform such a difficult task?
I realized God by offering my life's ignorance-husk
and ignorance-bark to the Supreme the moment my hour dawned
in my weeping life. What I have now is God. What I have now is
God's all-fulfilling Illumination-Life."
We have to commune with God all the time. In order to commune with
God all the time, we have to create the supreme necessity for this
inside our heart. This necessity has to be our psychic necessity. When
we have created a psychic necessity to commune with God all the time,
we shall without fail see God, talk to God, grow into the very image
of God and consciously participate in God's Cosmic Drama as devoted
and unconditional instruments of God.
(both unofficial quotes by Sri Chinmoy)
- To be in the centre and in spite of all our differences, be one hour
in serene meditation, is all due to the sleepless presence of
our Master, who looks at us from a different point of existence, the
existence of complete Bliss.
I recited a few poems by heart...
"God leads us in unexpected ways, we must have implicit faith in Him.
His Compassion-Eye will never guide us astray."
"The hardest lessons are by far the best for our fastest spiritual
"A tiny progress-step is indeed a giant victory in the inner world."
"O Lord Beloved Supreme, on my birthday I am praying to You to make me
realize that I am Your Heart's Golden Dream and You are my life's only
"On my birthday my Lord Beloved Supreme, I am praying to You to grant
me the capacity to keep my mind-telephone-line open only to You."
unofficial quotes by Sri Chinmoy
- This Wednesday was the last meditation in the "Secrets of Perfection-
Flames", the meditation place in Abarita's office building. We will
offer him a big bouquet of flowers, whose kindness heart is beyond
Christopher had his birthday yesterday, just in time before he flies
to New York for the 3100 mile race. He shared some thoughts and He
thanked everybody for the financial support for his upcoming adventure
journey; he was selected to join the race.
What a blessing for all of us, to have a member from the Zurich Centre
participating in this major ultra event. We wish him a good start and
what is more important a peaceful state of mind for the upcoming days.
"My dear Lord, how can I live
without Your Life's Compassion-Eye.
My sweet Lord, how can I breath
without Your Heart's Forgiveness-Sky."
(song text by Sri Chinmoy)
for Christopher's long endurance journey.
Here are the aphorism, all unofficial quotes by Sri Chinmoy
"Please, do not repeat the motto: I have tried my best. This motto is
obsolete now. The new motto is: I am going to fulfill my Lord Beloved
Supreme without fail this year."
"In the battlefield of life my Lord has granted my heart-tears the
supreme victory over the darkest ignorance-night."
PS: I recite one more in German to cerebrate this day.
"Vollkommenheit kommt langsam und bleibt im selben Raum, ja im selben
Raum wie die Geduld."
