AN EXCEPTION

He is an exception.
His disciples meditate for him.
His disciples carry his messages to God.
His disciples forgive him
More than he forgives them.
He is an exception.

Sri Chinmoy, I Need Only God, Agni Press, 1975.

GURU AND DISCIPLE

What is a Guru?
A Guru is he who devours
The ignorance-sea of his disciple.
What is a disciple?
A disciple is he who swims
In the wisdom-sea of his Guru.
What is a Guru?
A Guru is he who finds himself
In the soul of his disciple.
What is a disciple?
A disciple is he who loses himself
In the heart of his Guru.

 

Sri Chinmoy, The Golden Boat, Part 10, Agni Press, 1974.

THE IDEAL DISCIPLE

The ideal disciple
Is he who believes
Before he sees.

The ideal disciple
Is he whose mind
Is inside his heart.

The ideal disciple
Is he whose heart
Lives for his soul.

The ideal disciple
Is he whose soul
Distributes his goal.

Sri Chinmoy, The Wings Of Light, Part 1, Agni Press, 1974.
