50th Anniversary of Sri Chinmoy in Oxford

50 years ago. 19 November 1970, Sri Chinmoy visited Oxford for the first time. He gave a lecture at Keble College, entitled the Universe.

“The universe.

The universe is God’s creation and man’s realisation.

The universe is God’s Compassion and man’s emancipation.

The universe is God’s Concentration and man’s transformation.

The universe is God’s Meditation and man’s revelation.

The universe is God’s Contemplation and man’s manifestation.

The poet in me tells me that the universe is beautiful.

The singer in me tells me that the universe is enchanting.

The philosopher in me tells me that the universe is meaningful.

The Yogi in me tells me that the universe is soulful.

The God-lover in me tells me that the universe is fruitful.”

– Sri Chinmoy, My Rose Petals, part 1

Today I visited Keble College to mark this anniversary.
