Chinmoy Kumar Ghose, comunemente noto come Sri Chinmoy è stato un religioso, poeta e artista indiano.

Come maestro spirituale Sri Chinmoy, rifacendosi ad alcune tradizioni hindu, ha praticato e diffuso in Occidente la meditazione, la recitazione di mantra, la preghiera e la pratica sportiva anche estrema quali vie personali per aspirare all'illuminazione, intesa come realizzazione in Dio. Onorificato nel 1997 dell'Hindu Renaissance Award, Sri Chinmoy fu anche autore prolifico, e secondo stime fatte dai suoi seguaci egli avrebbe scritto circa 1.500 libri, composto 115.000 poesie e 20.000 canzoni, dipinto 200.000 quadri e dato quasi 800 concerti gratuiti finalizzati alla ricerca della pace interiore. Negli anni settanta Sri Chinmoy fu ispiratore e maestro di noti musicisti di quegli anni, fra i quali i chitarristi John McLaughlin e Carlos Santana. A Sri Chinmoy si ispira l'organizzazione internazionale Sri Chinmoy Centre.

Frasi Sri Chinmoy

„No religion is absolutely perfect.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: No religion is absolutely perfect. Yet not only do we fight for religion, but also are we often willing to sacrifice our lives for it. And what we hopelessly fail to do is to live it. A true religion is that which has no caste, no creed, no colour. It is but an all-uniting and all-pervading embrace.

„The Source is God, who is all Love.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: Life is nothing but the expansion of love. We can cultivate divine love by entering into the Source. The Source is God, who is all Love.

„It is an act of folly on our part to expect the same truth, the same knowledge and the same power from both science and spirituality.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: Now what should be the relation between science and spirituality? It should be a relation of mutual acceptance and true understanding. It is an act of folly on our part to expect the same truth, the same knowledge and the same power from both science and spirituality. We must not do that. Neither must we set up the same goal for science and spirituality.

„When we repeat the name of God, if love comes to the fore, then our prayer, our concentration, our meditation, our contemplation are genuine.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: Nothing can be greater than love. God is great only because He has infinite Love. If we want to define God, we can define Him in millions of ways, but I wish to say that no definition of God can be as adequate as the definition of God as all Love. When we say "God", if fear comes into our mind, then we are millions and billions of miles away from Him. When we repeat the name of God, if love comes to the fore, then our prayer, our concentration, our meditation, our contemplation are genuine. p. 2, Part 1

„The very acceptance of the spiritual life demands enormous courage. This courage is not the courage of a haughty, rough person who will strike others to assert his superiority; it is totally different.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: The very acceptance of the spiritual life demands enormous courage. This courage is not the courage of a haughty, rough person who will strike others to assert his superiority; it is totally different. This courage is our constant awareness of what we are entering into, of what we are going to become, of what we are going to reveal.

„Peace has a special friend: Joy. Anger has only one friend: Destruction.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: Anger has an enemy: Peace. Peace has no enemy. Peace has a special friend: Joy. Anger has only one friend: Destruction. April 27

„Science depends on outer experiment. Spirituality depends on inner searching and seeking.“

—  Sri Chinmoy
Context: Science depends on outer experiment. Spirituality depends on inner searching and seeking. A scientist discovers the power that very often threatens even his own life. A spiritual seeker discovers the power that guides and moulds his life into a life of divine fulfilment.
