Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose

Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose was an intriguing and inspirational figure. In truth I wouldn’t have thought much about him, but my Spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy saw in him some very illumining qualities.

Netaji braved all
To build a Heaven
Even in hell’s despair.

– Sri Chinmoy [1]

In particular Netaji embodied great heroism and had the power to unite the Indian people

“In the name of God, in the name of by-gone generations who have welded the Indian people into one nation and in the name of the dead heroes who have bequeathed to us a tradition of heroism and self-sacrifice, we call upon the Indian people to rally around our banner and to strike for India’s freedom.”

– Netaji

There is an article here “Replaying History” by Vidagdha about her recent visit to some significant places in Netaji’s life.

Sri Chinmoy left a vast legacy of work, one aspect I will always treasure is the way he could appreciate people from so many different walks of life. The human mind often looks for weaknesses and mistakes, but, Sri Chinmoy preferred to admire and appreciate the good qualities of others. These figures were not always outwardly spiritual (but it was the qualities of the heart and soul that Sri Chinmoy most appreciated.
