Two Hundred Flowers for 200 Books
Port Washington, N.Y. – An 11-foot-long garland containing 200 flowers was presented to Sri Chinmoy last month here at a celebration marking his publication of 200 books.
The books – consisting of spiritual plays, short stories, aphorisms, lectures and poems – were written by the Master during the 10 years he has been living in the U.S. He had previously written another 200 Bengali books in India.
Sri Chinmoy said that “the Supreme has created Himself in and through these books according to each seeker’s power of receptivity.”
The books, he continued, “belong to each individual seeker present here and also to each seeker on earth.”
Thanking his spiritual children for their help in typing, printing and distributing the books, the Master described himself as a football that the Supreme constantly is playing with.
“This football has no individuality of its own. You children have more individuality than I have. My individuality and personality I sold to the Supreme many centuries ago. He was kind enough to buy it from me with His infinite Compassion.”
Note: Anahata Nada was the longest running newsletter of the Sri Chinmoy Centre. It was first published on January 1, 1974, and chronicled Sri Chinmoy’s life and activities for over three decades until 2007.
