NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 16, 2017 /Many people struggle with finding their true meaning in life, and have so since the beginning of time. With all of the distractions and social pressures the world places on itself, it can seem like an impossible task to fully understand what one's purpose is, and live a fulfilled life based on that knowledge. World renowned spiritual leader Sri Chinmoy teaches that each person is unique, with something special to offer the world from their soul's mission. He emphasizes meditation as the only way can one become attuned to that specific, personal destiny that is in harmony with the universe.
Humans have a longing to know what they are ''supposed'' to be doing. Some seem to know what they want to do with their life from a young age, while others may go years and years without ever ''finding'' it. A conflict of mental and cultural constructs at odds with one's own personal destiny is often the result of the latter. That destiny is realized by quieting the mind and emotions, and becoming more in touch with the illumined soul by the way of meditation. ''Your soul has a special mission. Your soul is supremely conscious of it,'' Sri Chinmoy says. ''Maya, illusion or forgetfulness, makes you feel that you are finite, weak and helpless. This is not true. You are not the body. You are not the senses. You are not the mind. These are all limited. You are the soul, which is unlimited. Your soul is infinitely powerful. Your soul defies all time and space.''
To Chinmoy, identifying the mission of one's soul unlocks the body and mind to an authentic sense of peace and happiness that cannot be found any other way. ''Your mission is in the inmost recesses of your heart, and you have to find and fulfil it there,'' he says. ''There can be no external way for you to fulfil your mission.'' To illustrate this teaching, Chinmoy uses the example of a deer. ''The deer grows musk in his own body. He smells it and becomes enchanted, and tries to locate its source. He runs and runs, but he cannot find the source. In his endless search, he loses all his energy and finally he dies. But the source he was so desperately searching for was within himself. How could he find it elsewhere? Such is the case with you,'' Chinmoy says. ''Your special mission - which is the fulfilment of your divinity - is not outside you, but within you. Search within. Meditate within. You will discover your mission.''
Born in the small village of Shakpura in East Bengal (now Bangladesh) in 1931, Sri Chinmoy was an internationally beloved spiritual leader who made a lasting impact on the Western world after his move to New York City in 1964, most notably among celebrities in music, sports and acting. A prolific author, artist, poet, and musician, he held numerous public events across the world, including concerts and meditations on the theme of inner peace. Chinmoy advocated a spiritual path to God through prayer and meditation, and also encouraged athleticism as part of transcendental meditation. His teachings have inspired a worldwide organization that seeks to encourage and foster a brighter future for humanity through initiatives in sports and music, as well as both the teaching of meditation, and humanitarian aid.
