~ 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

First Glimpse of Moksha

A student, age 43 with 3 children, has been meditating for about 7 months. Her meditation program is 60 minutes in length, twice a day. She has Atmavedi Meditation, the Ananda Technique, the first 12 Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and the Esoteric Mahamantra. This morning we had the following exchange:

Kundalat Devi"During meditation today the whole world collapsed! My head is in chaos! I saw my physical life as an idea in deep silence. Life all of a sudden lost its meaning, and my mind experienced total collapse!"

Visvamitra"This is an excellent experience! You experienced your life from your subtle mind. This experience can be very confusing at first. "

Kundalat Devi"I felt sadness and anger! Now it is gone, but it came to me during meditation."

Visvamitra"Yes, that was caused by leaving ego behind. It is the source of sadness and anger, and you have witnessed the ego from a higher perspective.  You must release control of the physical body and the physical mind . This is a very important step to achieve Moksha, where you realize that everything is in the mind of the Creator."
