~ Sri Chinmoy

Born Chinmoy Kumar Ghose in the small village of Shakpura in East Bengal (now Bangladesh) in 1931, Sri Chinmoy was the youngest of seven children. In 1944, after both his parents had passed away, 12 year-old Chinmoy entered the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, a spiritual community near Pondicherry in South India. Here he spent the next 20 years in spiritual practice - including long hours of meditation, practising athletics, writing poetry, essays and spiritual songs.

Sri Chinmoy sees aspiration - the heart's ceaseless yearning for ever higher and deeper realities - as the spiritual force behind all great advances in religion, culture, sports and science. By living in the heart and aspiring for continual self-transcendence, men and women can bring forward the best in themselves and find their path to true satisfaction. In his words: 'Our goal is to go from bright to brighter to brightest, from high to higher to highest. And even in the highest, there is no end to our progress, for God Himself is inside each of us and God at every moment is transcending His own Reality'.

Sri Chinmoy entered Mahasamadhi - the mystic process through which spiritual Masters leave the body, on the morning of 11 October 2007

Moksha Advanced Course With Oneness Awakening Course

To achieve Moksha in this lifetime is the only reason you have a human body, and as His Divinity Brahmanda Saraswati once said: "to waste a human life by not achieving Moksha is like selling diamonds for the price of spinach!"

Krishna and Arjuna with Vishnu - smallLord Krishna said to Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita (chapter 2 verse 48): "yogastha kuru karmani" or "established in union with Me, perform action." This is exactly the definition of Moksha.

Moksha is at the same time the most simple and natural way to live and the most difficult transition that anyone can make. Our universe has been around for over 150 trillion years and we have incarnated again and again to accomplish this one task - achieve Moksha - yet this accomplishment has eluded most of us so far.

Those like Eckhart Tolle who suddenly switch into Moksha for no apparent reason and without any preliminary training, find it difficult to explain to us how to live in the state of Moksha, yet they describe Moksha very well. For it is to them such a simple thing. Eckhart said: "The beginning of freedom (Moksha) is the realization that you are not the possessing entity - the thinker. Knowing this enables you to observe the entity. The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind. You begin to awaken."
