Sri Chinmoy's Heart-Garden
This delightful book I compiled, the poems are by the author my meditation teacher Sri Chinmoy. 300 short poems categorised in nine categories, accompanied by Sri Chinmoy's delicate penned bird-drawings.
When you meditate,
Think of a morning flower
Smiling and smiling,
Radiating its beauty and
Offering its fragrance.
This is how you can make friends
With your soul
And fly with it infinitely higher
Than the confines of the mind.
Sri Chinmoy’s Heart-Garden is poetic guidance on how we all can achieve some of life’s great objectives – Hope, Happiness, Joy, Love, Harmony and Service. This delightful collation captures the reader’s heart and soul and elevates us to a clearer understanding of the wisdom of these sublime utterances.

Flowing from the silent depths of a profound spiritual awareness and rising to sublime heights of poetic inspiration, Sri Chinmoy’s Heart-Garden’s aphorisms bring great joy and inspiration to the reader. They are rare blossoms of beauty whose rich fragrance carries not only sweetness, but also a powerful global message.

Sri Chinmoy is a master of the aphorism. There is no-one writing from the same spiritual height, with the same certainty, the same authority of voice. Deceptively simple, these poems, prayers and meditations resonate in the mind and expand in the heart. Written with clarity and lucidity, they are inspirational, instructional and above all, accessible. This book is a delight.
