Sri Chinmoy was a prolific poet, artist, musician and sportsman. In this revealing conversation, Sri Chinmoy talks about the source of his achievements  and creativity.

Throughout his life time, Sri Chinmoy was a dynamo of non-stop prolific output in multiple fields of creativity – 22,000 songs, 140,000 paintings and over 1,600 books of poetry, aphorisms and prose to name a few. However he always insisted that he was not the real doer – his role was only to become a silent, simple and humble instrument of God, who can then do everything in and through us. In this 2005 interview in Aspiration-Ground, New York, Sri Chinmoy again gives all the credit for his achievements to meditation and God’s Grace.
