An Eternal Smile

This beautiful photo made by my brother friend Prashphutita in Sydney in the year 1989 shows better than a 1000 words what kind of smile Sri Chinmoy gave us all his live and through which he poured his eternal love and concern into our hearts and souls… This photo has a special meaning to me because I later purchased this track suit from him and I still use it almost daily. I got access to this photo today, 3 days before my birthday on October 11th. – Kedar
