From Sri Chinmoy to Pope Paul VI

"I am deeply impressed with your philosophy. You say that materialism and spirituality must go side by side. My humble philosophy also says the same. The inner life of aspiration and the outer life of manifestation must go together, one fulfilling the other in a divine way."

Sri Chinmoy
March 22nd, 1972
Meeting at the Vatican 1

"O Compassion-Father, O Champion-Brother, O Perfection-Friend, your mind is divinely great; your heart is supremely good. Your greatness-mind is illumining humanity's hope. Your goodness-heart is fulfilling humanity's promise."

Sri Chinmoy 2


Father, we love your eyes of glowing light.
Father, we love your heart of Compassion-Height.
Your soul champions love-cry for peace on earth.
You bless our weakling hearts with confidence-birth.
In you is quenched the breathless thirst of world-hours.
In you the UN's high perfection-tree flowers.

A song by Sri Chinmoy composed in honour of Pope Paul VI.
