Everest-Aspiration 40th Anniversary
During a one month period during the summer of 1977, Sri Chinmoy gave 100 talks on aspects of the spiritual life. After a few weeks, these talks were published in a series of four books entitled ‘Everest-Aspiration.’
The talks encompass the core of Sri Chinmoy’s spiritual philosophy - and offer seekers a practical guide to making progress on the path of yoga. These talks inspire, challenge and illumine the aspirant to dive into a real and meaningful spirituality. The book touches not just the philosophical level but also gives the receptive reader an intuitive sense of the spiritual consciousness behind the words.
“Smile, my friends, my soulful friends, smile. Let us smile. True, this world of ours is full of suffering and excruciating pangs, but that is no reason why we should not smile. We must smile in order to unburden the world’s suffering-burden. We must smile in order to diminish its untold pangs.”
