- Listen to Radio Sri Chinmoy to hear some of the performances at last year’s one year observance.
- Read impressions from Kedar, a Swiss photographer, blogger and videographer who is a student of Sri Chinmoy.
- Read and watch moving tributes to Sri Chinmoy offered immediately after his passing on his official website.
I will also make the journey to New York for this year’s anniversary observances. I just spent time there last weekend to pray and meditate on my own 49th birthday. I felt many inner and outer blessings and special spiritual experiences during that visit. These experiences create yet another example of the continued sense of his inner presence and connection in my life despite the absence of his physical presence.
This continuing sense of guidance from my spiritual teacher makes me think that a Mahasamadhi anniversary can be as much a celebration of his life and gifts to others than for it to be a time for sorrow and mourning. I know there will be at least a few tears – there already were a few days ago – but mostly you will find me in a choir of happiness and praise for the profound encouragement, inspiration and peace that he shared so completely with each and every person fortunate enough to know him.
