~ 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

Shanti Vitara to Dissolve Current Karma

KarmaKarma is the effect that actions performed, which are not in accord with the Divine concept of our Universe, in past lives or the current life, have on the current or future lives of an individual. The effect of karma is to balance the energy pattern that the karma represents and restore harmony in the Universe. If one resists the karma that is coming into the life, it will be slow to balance. If one accepts the karma, then it will balance quickly. Generally, the ego will make a judgement call that this karma is "bad" so it will be resisted and that karma is "good" so it will be accepted. The effect of this is to allow the "good" karma to balance quickly and the "bad" karma will not balance quickly, instead the negativity will persist and accumulate in life.

The ego is like a prison guard who confines the prisoner to a tiny cell that is labeled as "reality" when in fact the true reality is unbounded, limitless life of Biss and abundance. When we seek Moksha we are saying goodbye to the ego and walking out of the prison cell into the beautiful sunshine of Bliss Consciousness. Moksha is total freedom from all limitations and boundaries that inhibit the full expression of life. Once we understand that Moksha is a choice, just like suffering and boundaries are a choice, we  choose Moksha!

EgoNow that we have chosen Mosksha, we still have karma to deal with, and dealing with it takes our time and energy and detracts from the time we have for meditation and other spiritual practices that help us to achieve Moksha. So we need efficient ways to accept and allow our karma to balance. There are basically two forms of karma: 1) current karma that has already come into the life and is manifesting its effects now, and future karma that will be coming into the life at some future date. We have the blessing of Graha Yajnas from Lord Vishnu to shield our life from future karma, but it takes time before all future karma is shielded - about 55 months of confinuous operation of the Maha Yajna Vitara. During this time current karma continues to arise and must be accepted and balanced.
