Australia — My Indian Mind Is Flying
My Indian mind is flying
To offer you my admiration-gong.
My Indian heart is flying
To offer you my aspiration-song.

Australia: The Source of My Esraj
An anecdote by Sri Chinmoy
at PS 86, Jamaica, New York
As you know, my most favourite instrument is the esraj. The esraj is the source of my musical world. The other day we observed the anniversary of our esraj. The source of my esraj performance is Australia. On television in Australia I played the esraj.
I also started playing the Western flute in Australia. The flute I remember. It was in an Australian bus that I started. I tried so hard! The first and second notes were all right, but the third note was out of my control.
