Sri Chinmoy: 1931-2007

Sri ChinmoyMy beloved Guru, Sri Chinmoy, passed away yesterday at 7am, at his home in New York.

Sri Chinmoy has been my meditation teacher — the inner and outer inspiration of my life — over the last decade.

On a human level I am naturally shocked and sad at his sudden earthly parting, but inwardly I will never in this life fathom the inner gifts of inspiration he has given me through his teaching.

More than human sadness, which will pass in time, I feel gratitude, gratitude, gratitude for spending these years in the balm of his wisdom. That gratitude will never end. His teachings will always be with me, and I hope only to make my own life — my actions, creations and interactions — a tribute to them.
