Chinmayananda Jayanthi- 8th May!

Swami Chinmayananda - A Tribute to the Master | Chinmaya Upahar
Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive but to be young was very heaven
To be the Secretary of Chinmaya Mission Thanjavur was indeed a bliss
At  young age of twenty two-it was all HIS blessings still green memories!
Attended Geeta Gnana Yagnas-great spiritual experience and that is bliss!
Thanjavur Mission Branch at my home in North Main Street has seen
Weekly Study classes,  library and mission members meets!
Geetha Gnana Yagyas in Big temple premises for almost a decade!
Monthly Sathsangs, quarterly Sadhana camps annual yagyas !
Bissful period in my life! Still I ruminate at age at eighty !
More than Geeta- “MY six thirty means six thirty neither six twenty nine
Nor Six thirty one! My eight means neither seven fifty nine nor eight not one!”
Such a punctualist to the core not to come across any longer
My refrain in my training classes used to be a subject of discussion on this
With a quiz “Can you tell me a Barrister turned spiritual head?”
As a clue poorvashrama name started with ‘B’ sanyashrama name started with ‘C”!
Eighth May is today a holy day! Swamiji’s jayanthi day!
