“Wings of Joy” now published in Korean

Sri Chinmoy’s book “Wings of Joy” is certainly one of the most popular ones, published in the US by Simon & Schuster, NY. In the meantime the Korean Publisher Solkwahak was inspired to make their own edition, and they did a beautiful job. The book is hardbound and each chapter is on a different colour paper with many illustrations. And what is most surprising for me, they took all photographs from my portfolio on the Sri Chinmoy Gallery page and even some black and white photos of me as a child on the opening page of the content. Thanks to Govinda, one of Sri Chinmoy’s early students, who is currently learning Korean, I got access to a copy of the book. See one sample page on the right side. The layout is beautiful and very asiatic. The book has 264 pages. ISBN-89-87794-86-5.  – Kedar Misani

 

1st Anniversary of Sri Chinmoy’s Mahasamadhi

This Saturday, October 11, it is one year since a great spiritual master left us, at least on the physical plane. On the subtle plane Sri Chinmoy is more present than ever. Through his many thousand students world-wide he continues to nourish us and all aspiring souls of the world with his infinite peace and poise. Many things changed since his passing and our life is not the same anymore. We changed and all our activities seem to be different. We cannot contact the master outwardly anymore and ask him questions that occupy us. We have to find our own solutions. But we are also riper, grown-up. We manifest his light as good as we can and are loking forward to reach our soul’s goals in this lifetime. We play a divine play and the better we do it, the more rewarded we will be in our next incarnations. So with these thoughts I will approach October 11, which by the way is also my birthday at the same time. So joy and sorrow are tied together and hopefully divine happiness will result as the final goal. This picture is part of a series of Sri Chinmoy in his early years in the West when he started to establish his spiritual centres in the U.S. Some of these  photos are published regularly in the photo blog srichinmoyphotos – Kedar Misani
