In this short extract from an inspiring interview on ‘The Way To Go’, Sri Chinmoy comments on the mystical significance of his name, Chinmoy “full of consciousness”. Sri Chinmoy explains how consciousness is of utmost importance in the spiritual life to provide us with peace of mind and help us to be of service to the divine.

Excerpt from the interview:

”I was born into a family of aspiration – we call it an “inner cry”. If we aspire to become a chosen instrument of God, then God utilizes the instrument in His own way. So I have tried and I am still trying to become a perfect instrument of my Beloved Supreme.“
