The Journey Eternal

Sri Chinmoy, Beloved Spiritual Master, my Guru, left the earth on October 11, 2007.

For me, the supreme teaching of his life was:

Ignorance is nothing, God is everything.

On balance, I feel this was a lesson not hard won - it required only that I accept Sri Chinmoy for who he was.

The real challenge that Guru offered me was the same challenge that he himself faced:

Now prove it!

The extraordinary love, compassion, joy and humour that he embraced this challenge with was unstinting. A lifetime of unparalleled opportunity shines before me now, revealed by his example...

Thank you Guru.
