Baridhi Yonchev, a student of Sri Chinmoy’s from Sofia, Bulgaria, recounts the first time he met Sri Chinmoy; meeting your spiritual teacher for the first time is often a memorable experience. For Baridhi, it happened during a concert held by Sri Chinmoy in Bratislava, by the Danube River; the most striking thing Baridhi remembers is the feeling and consciousness of the room before and during Sri Chinmoy’s sitar performance.
