~ Sri Chinmoy

Born Chinmoy Kumar Ghose in the small village of Shakpura in East Bengal (now Bangladesh) in 1931, Sri Chinmoy was the youngest of seven children. In 1944, after both his parents had passed away, 12 year-old Chinmoy entered the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, a spiritual community near Pondicherry in South India. Here he spent the next 20 years in spiritual practice - including long hours of meditation, practising athletics, writing poetry, essays and spiritual songs.

Sri Chinmoy sees aspiration - the heart's ceaseless yearning for ever higher and deeper realities - as the spiritual force behind all great advances in religion, culture, sports and science. By living in the heart and aspiring for continual self-transcendence, men and women can bring forward the best in themselves and find their path to true satisfaction. In his words: 'Our goal is to go from bright to brighter to brightest, from high to higher to highest. And even in the highest, there is no end to our progress, for God Himself is inside each of us and God at every moment is transcending His own Reality'.

Sri Chinmoy entered Mahasamadhi - the mystic process through which spiritual Masters leave the body, on the morning of 11 October 2007

Krishna's Flute

"The Sound Of Silence"
by Simon and Garfunkel

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence
...[1]

As we progress in our journey back home and approach the first milestone, Level 1 Moksha, the experience of a sound in the head may be noticed. To some this is like a monotoned, high-pitched "eeeeeeeee....." and to others is takes on more of a flute-like melody. Modern medicine has a theory about this, they call it "tinnitus" and occasionally Moksha Vitara Pendant Face - Krishna 3there is a sound that arises as a result of injury, illness or trauma. But if you are meditating or adopting an inward, reflective lifestyle, not exposed to loud sounds that could have damaged your ears, and spontaneously one day you notice this sound, usually it comes occasionally at first, perhaps when meditating, then you notice it outside of meditation and eventually all the time, this is Krishna's Flute. Congratulations! This is a common experience and nothing be concerned about, actually you can celebrate that you are one step closer to Moksha.

Everywhere there are pictures of Krishna playing a flute. This quality of Krishna, the one who plays the flute, is mentioned throughout the Vedic Literature. Why? To let you know that when you begin to hear this sound, you are awaking to Krishna's call to return home to Him.
