Sri Chinmoy, this remarkable visionary and Seer of the 20th and 21st Century. I met him many times in my 33 years of Discipleship. I suppose that through Grace, I was like this since childhood. I came to special parents who was suited for my spiritual freedom, and as such inner growth.
I drifted in my early twenties and again re-awakened by a chance encounter with a beautiful book called Autobiography By A Western Yogi. I visited the Sri Chinmoy Centre very soon afterwards, October 1st 1982, and I have not looked back since.
Whatever I have learnt, I have learnt from sitting at the feet of Sri Chinmoy and in reading his books. It is all Grace, really. Sri Chinmoy would say that God is the only Doer, and that we are all instruments of the Divine. Nice question, ThreeKeys. Much Peace.
