Walking Meditation is a special form of meditation that spiritual leader and peace advocate Sri Chinmoy used a lot on his transformed tennis-court “Aspiration-Grund” in Jamaica, Queens (NY) to inwardly communicate with his disciples that gathered several times a year in New York. Filmed by kedarvideo, Switzerland in April 1993.
Sri Chinmoy: “On the first day of this year, I was in Nandi, Fiji. My father’s soul came to me and we had a marathon conversation. Then I became inspired to draw birds representing my father, my mother and my sisters and brothers as part of my series of one million birds. Although these soul-bird drawings are part of my one million, they are not like the other birds. These bird drawings are something special in my own life. In these birds, I have put the consciousness of my father, my mother and my sisters and brothers. I can see it very vividly, very vividly. Strangely enough, when my students counted the number of little birds in my mother’s drawing, they found the exact number to be 3,127 — and I happened to be born in 1931 on August 27th.” – This photo by Prashphutita Greco was published today on: https://www.srichinmoy-reflections.com/.
