  • Thank You Sumangali and others. My summer as a door-to-door encyclopedia salesman was a difficult but memorable one. Besides having to conquer fear and nervousness in order to approach many strangers everyday on their own territory, I also had to express myself clearly and confidently enough to be able to sell the product. I was quite young, 21 and about to turn 22. I had been a...

  • Going through my journal from the 80's mostly from functions at Progress-Promise as mentioned in previous posts, I came across some notes from March 11, 1989. Guru held a 7-hour meditation that day which was a Saturday. Guru read out aphorisms or prayers pausing with a 10 minute silent meditation after each one. There were 24 of these aphorism/meditation sessions that day. Although...

  • Sumangali, Fantastic article with so many ideas to ponder. Briefly I want to mention two things that came to mind in my own personal life after reading your story: I was an encyclopedia salesman during the summer after graduating University majoring in Child Development and Education. As a new salesman and rookie teacher my approach was to look for a house with children's toys or a...

  • Thank you for the positive feedback on my 'Progress-Promise Reminiscences'. Before I finish sending the aphorisms I started to quote from Guru from my Progress Promise Journal notes that day, I wish to offer some other comments by Guru that I wrote down in my own words in that journal from another day. It was on February 1, 1988. Guru started lifting 300 lbs. He attempting to lift...

  • Last week I wrote about the marathon in Chico, California that Guru ran on March 3, 1979. It was his first official marathon race and it was officially called the 'Bidwell Classic'. Guru wore the number '200'. His time was 4 hours, 31 min. and 34 sec's. Three weeks later, on March 25, 1979, Guru radically surprised us with another marathon he ran in Toledo, Ohio. It was called the...

  • Progress-Promise Reminiscences-1 One of my many journals spans the full decade from 1983 to 1993. During most of that time I had taken this little notebook to Progress-Promise, a hall we had rented from 1980 to 1989, more or less. We had many, many local functions here with Guru from the first days when it was called the 'Gym'. There were reasons for that original name which we can...

  • I wanted to clarify one sentence in the post I sent about the Chico Anniversary Marathon. In the sentence which I wrote: " Some of the women in California and New York usually run the Chico race which is now only a half-marathon, but some of the more brave disciples run it twice." It meant that some of the disciple women run the race in Chico, California every year which is where...

  • It's that time of year again. The beginning of March, yes, Spring is in the air, or at least it should be. Not in New York or Boston area yet though. We have had one of the coldest winters in NYC history with lots of snow and ice not even close to melting yet. We just had an icy cold snowstorm today, March 1, as well. But it is also time to remember something quite positive...

  • In New York last night, Wednesday, 26 March, we had a wonderful Function dedicated to the memory of our dear brother, Ketan, who unfortunately passed away last Saturday evening, March 22, at the age of 46, due to a variety of illnesses. Ketan had been a disciple of Sri Chinmoy since he was barely two years old. He grew up on the Sri Chinmoy’s Path in Connecticut and New York. In...

  • In New York this past weekend we celebrated Guru's first official marathon race that he ran 35 years ago in Chico, California. In the morning in sub-freezing temperatures 17 runners started running a full marathon around Jamaica High School block. Many others joined in all morning running a few miles or more. Some of the participants formed teams, adding their cumulative miles up...
