I found the following video refreshing. It raises many valid points, and asks interesting questions, though actually I would answer them differently to the way intended.
A boat was rented for an afternoon
to show us the surrounding isles,
cutting through glassy Adriatic blue,
inviting us to villages of white stone houses
shuttered blind in hibernation.
Auspicious Good Fortune is now available in Russian! Published by Guru-Noka Publications in Moscow. Contact Sumangali for more details…
The Record Breaker is an award-winning short film by Brian McGinn. It follows Ashrita Furman, student of Sri Chinmoy and Guinness World Record holder for breaking the most Guinness World Records of all time. Bravo! A must-see for anyone interested in Sri Chinmoy, in physical achievement, or in life generally.
Sumangali Morhall’s Auspicious Good Fortune details one woman’s spiritual awakening in beautiful, lyrical prose that sometimes reads like poetry. The rhythm and cadence of her voice is easy to fall into, easy to find peace in.
“Morhall’s spiritual journey is inspiring and hopeful and honest … but above all, her prose is intoxicating and raw…”
On July 28th 2012, renowned Olympians, peace leaders, artists and musicians came together in London to celebrate the Olympic spirit of peace and universal friendship, by unveiling the “World Peace Dreamer” statue – a bronze sculpture of Sri Chinmoy holding an Olympic-style peace torch.
“It is a course in how to come to terms with the reality of life while all the while having the courage to overcome challenges and never, ever giving up on your journey of discovery, as you never know what is waiting for you just around the corner.”
Lately, as my father would say, I’ve been flat out like a lizard drinking, and it had probably better be a chameleon, considering the variety of circumstances I’ve found myself in.
“Morhall presents us with a conclusion that echoes the wisdom of ancient sages quoted within her very pages: to find a spiritual master and to follow the life of inner truth is the most auspicious path of all. Auspicious Good Fortune is the highly recommended tale of that search, and furthermore, the tale of what is found.”
“Described as ‘One woman’s inspirational journey from Western disillusionment to Eastern spiritual fulfillment,’ it is really much more: a journey into the sensibility of the human heart, longing for the ineffable.”
The book is beautifully written and well-crafted…. It gives a rare insight into the fascinating, conflicted life of a very modern spiritual seeker…. It is an extraordinary tale and highly recommended.
