  • Renunciation | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    If renunciation means leaving aside one s family if renunciation means not caring for society or humanity then I wish to say that no matter what we renounce today there will be something else tomorrow to stand in our way Today our family is the obstacle tomorrow it will be our friends the day after tomorrow it will be our country and the day after the world There is no end to this kind of renunciation Certainly we have to renounce in the spiritual life What are we going to renounce We are going to renounce fear doubt imperfection ignorance and death We are not going to renounce individuals we are going to renounce qualities which stand in the way of our union with the Divine When we enter into the spiritual life we get the opportunity to renounce or rather to transform these qualities If somebody says he is going to renounce the world in order to realise God then I wish to say that he is mistaken Today he will renounce the world and tomorrow he will find that the God he is seeking is nowhere else He is in the world itself What is preventing him from

  • Spiritual Surrender | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    in the dark Earthly freedom cries out in the deserts of life But absolute surrender universally sings of divine individuality and freedom in the lap of the Supreme In surrender we discover the spiritual power through which we can become not only the seers but also the possessors of Truth This Truth is the omnipotent power If we can surrender in absolute silence we shall ourselves become the reality of the real the life of the living the center of true love peace and bliss A lovely child attracts our attention We love him because he conquers our heart But do we ask anything from him in return No We love him because he is the object of love he is lovable In the same way we can and should love God for He is the most lovable Being Spontaneous love for the Divine is surrender and this surrender is the greatest gift in life For when we surrender the Divine in no time gives us infinitely more than we would have asked for Surrender is a spiritual miracle It teaches us how to see God with our eyes closed how to talk to Him with our mouth shut Fear enters into our being only when we withdraw our surrender from the Absolute Every action of ours should be to please God and not to gain applause Our actions are too secret and sacred to display before others They are meant for our own progress achievement and realisation Surrender to God s Will entirely depends on our necessity If we feel that our life is meaningless that we will not be satisfied or fulfilled without surrendering our earthly existence to God s Will then surrender will be possible for us God can never compel us to surrender it is we

  • Suffering and sorrow | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    Why do we have to pass through sad experiences such as suffering and sorrow Sri Chinmoy Why do we experience suffering In this world we are always consciously or unconsciously making mistakes When we consciously make mistakes we are quite aware of it But unfortunately we do not realize how many things we are doing wrong unconsciously These unconscious mistakes manifest themselves in the physical world and the results come to us as suffering In the case of ordinary unaspiring human beings after tremendous suffering sincerity dawns and the soul leads them to knowledge and wisdom If people who repeatedly make mistakes have sincere aspiration and want to know why they are suffering then the soul s Light comes to the fore and tells them If we are spiritual people consciously we will try not to do anything wrong but unconsciously we do many things wrong We can prevent unconscious mistakes only through our aspiration prayer and meditation If we aspire then God s grace and compassion protect us It is not necessary to go through suffering before we enter into the kingdom of delight Many people have realised God through love The Father has love for the child and the child has love for the Father This love takes us to our goal Our philosophy emphasizes the positive way of approaching Truth We have limited light Let us increase it Let us progress from more Light to abundant Light to infinite Light The highest discovery is this We came from delight we grow in delight and at the end of our journey s close we retire into delight Delight is now in the inner world while the outer world is all suffering We see people quarreling and fighting Fear doubt anger jealousy and other undivine elements torture us But

  • The Power of Purity | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    Sri Chinmoy The Power of Purity A question on Purity Question Please speak to us about the power of purity Sri Chinmoy Purity is the Light of our soul expressing its divinity through the body the vital and the mind When we are pure we gain everything If we can retain our purity we will never lose anything worth keeping Today we may have great thoughts or great inner power but tomorrow we are bound to lose them if we are not pure Purity is the breath of the Supreme When purity leaves us the breath of the Supreme also leaves and we are left with only our human breath Purity is like a divine magnet It pulls all divine qualities into us If you have purity then you have everything There are two ways to have purity One is by seeing God inside everyone consciously and constantly The other is by imagining God and consciously repeating His name as many times as possible If you have purity you do not have to go to God God Himself will make you see His infinite Divinity What God is will be reflected in you Purity expedites God s hour Purity embodies

  • The Soul's Special Mission | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    Wisdom of Sri Chinmoy The Soul s Special Mission A question about The Soul s Special Mission Question Has each soul a special mission Sri Chinmoy Your soul has a special mission Your soul is supremely conscious of it Maya illusion or forgetfulness makes you feel that you are finite weak and helpless This is not true You are not the body You are not the senses You are not the mind These are all limited You are the soul which is unlimited Your soul is infinitely powerful Your soul defies all time and space Has your soul a special mission Yes Your mission is in the inmost recesses of your heart and you have to find and fulfill it there There can be no external way for you to fulfill your mission The deer grows musk in his own body He smells it and becomes enchanted and tries to locate its source He runs and runs but he cannot find the source In his endless search he loses all his energy and finally he dies But the source he was so desperately searching for was within himself How could he find it elsewhere Such is the case with you

  • Faith | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    life Sri Chinmoy Please try to feel from now on that there is Somebody around you who does not want anything from you except joy There is Somebody who wants you always to swim in the Sea of Joy and Delight If you can remain in joy I don t mean the outer joy of going here and there mixing with people buying material things but if you can have real joy and inner fulfilment then you will automatically have faith in God When we are worried or are afraid of something we immediately try to create a kind of self imposed faith in God This is not true faith When we are in danger we say God save me save me But we say this only to avert danger This is an escape This kind of faith does not last Everything is inside a person both joy and fulfilment But who is the possessor of this inner fulfilment It is God We are just His devoted instruments When we feel spontaneous inner joy as part and parcel of our life and we feel its source we can then have faith in God the possessor of infinite Joy From now
