Day 32: To Have Peace

“Running has been important to me my whole life.  But when I became a student of Sri Chinmoy it seemed running was very important to follow this path.”

“Running became even more important when I started running long distance.”

“You can find peace and tranquility while running  We can develop these inner qualities while running as well.”

“I think that when the hard times come while I am running this race.  Meditation reveals more to me and manifests more to me. It is during the hard times that are the best for developing these inner qualities.”

“I think we can have peace all the time but we have to invoke this peace and focus on it so that it comes to us.  It can be spontaneous but sometimes you must work and aspire to have this peace.”

First things first.
You do not have to know
The secret of peace.
You just have to know
The secret of self-transcendence.
Your self-transcendence
Will surround your entire being
With peace.

    Hi Utpal! Are you planning to capture kitchen crew this year? It would be so nice to see who are working behind the curtain and also to hear from the helpers what is their day like and what is it like to be a helper. Thank you so much for All your tremendous Service. I wait for your report every day, and it makes me so excited when i see new report being posted. These 52 days are so special!
