Cycling Prayer

by Sri Chinmoy


For the past twelve months, I have been offering prayers in the morning, before I do my weightlifting. Now I have embarked on a new journey. Each time before I do ten minutes cycling, I will offer a prayer. By living here in the West, I have become a man of prayers.


My Absolute Lord Supreme!
May the tears of my heart
Feed You
Exactly the way
The Smiles of Your Eye
Feed my heart —
