During his 1997 Birthday Celebrations, Sri Chinmoy offers a profound meditation. In the background, a group of his disciples perform a very significant song – ‘Dyulok Chariye’ – which is composed by Sri Chinmoy and dedicated to the spiritual Master, Sri Aurobindo. Sri Chinmoy originally composed this as a Bengali poem, before translating into English on 15 August, 1945. Sri Chinmoy set this epic poem to music on 8 July 1995.

The song was often affectionately known as Sri Chinmoy’s ‘Longest Song’ – it was the longest song out of Sri Chinmoy’s extensive repertoire of 22,000 songs.

Translation of first stanza

God in human form
Descends from Heaven today
To touch and feel
The breath of earth-dust.
Comrades, His Victory
Let us proclaim, casting aside
All our world-responsibility-obligations.

– Sri Chinmoy [1]
