Books by Sri Chinmoy's students
Sumangali is one of the best writers in the Sri Chinmoy Centre, and this is an in-depth account of her journey to becoming a disciple of Sri Chinmoy and finding a deeper fulfilment in life. In vivid terms, she writes of her upbringing and her growing disillusionment with the expectations of modern life; her story is very unique, but the broad themes will resonate with many others also seeking to explore the world of meditation and spirituality.
The second half of the book describes the years she spent with Sri Chinmoy prior to his passing in 2007, and contains many illumining anecdotes and experiences with Sri Chinmoy which helped transform her life and spiritual practice. In all, the book is a revealing perspective on the Guru-disciple relationship, and how the ancient practice of learning from a spiritual Master can have great relevance to a modern spiritual life.
The audiobook, narrated by Sumangali, is also available free of charge to download from sumangali.org, or to listen to at Radio Sri Chinmoy.
