Inspiration from early film footage

I recently saw an early 16mm film of Sri Chinmoy, produced around 1975. It started with art. Sri Chinmoy is doing Jharna-Kala painting records and shows his work for the first time in public. One of the achievements was the creation of a big canvas, several meters long. Another chapter shows him in Samadhi in his home, a kind of highest meditation rarely seen in this form. But the film also shows Sri Chinmoy driving himself to the UN where he conducted twice weekly meditations for the staff. One film section is especially cute: you see him taking breakfast and he expresses his love for cucumbers. The last part shows him walking to a meditation on a meadow and then demonstrating several divine qualities and meditation techniques. Moving pictures from Sri Chinmoy are always precious because they bring his life essence back – you forget that he is already in the other world.

  1. Yes, I saw that 8 mm home movie also in Philadelphia in 1970 or 1972 at the International House on Walnut Street. It was a new member class to inform people of his path and some may have joined the group at that time. For me it was not until 1987, but that was a most significant year in the world consciousness. Even impossible tasks were easy that year, per CKG (I heard this from Meghna).
