Poetry is an integral part of Sri Chinmoy’s creative work. Every day he writes new poems and over the Christmas vacations there were thousands of new ones. When you read them you learn the secrets of modern spirituality, but when you hear the writer reciting them himself you can receive even more of the meaning. The mantric quality of each poem becomes like a deep and colorful sound wave that permeates the heart. These recitations were recorded in the Music Academy of Stockholm in 1990 and begin with a short talk on poetry. The following poems are  presented in the original Bengali version, then in English translation; some poems have been translated into Swedish. Length: 1:08 h.
