What is a true Disciple?

One book that Sri Chinmoy treasured a lot is called “A True Disciple”. It is the 1,209th book, published by Agni Press in 1998. With 66 short poems Sri Chinmoy illumines the theme from the point of view of a realised soul. The book is like a compendium that offers us some insight thoughts we can use every day in our spiritual life. Here are a few examples:

A true disciple
Is the divine pride
Of his Master’s heart.

The Master knows
That his true disciple
Is not only available,
But also serviceable
around the clock.

A true disciple
Knows that his Master
Has no will of his own.
God’s Will
Is his Master’s will.

A true disciple
Knows that his Master’s heart
Is his only home.

– Sri Chinmoy
