Our very existence on earth depends on God’s compassion, yet its meaning eludes us. Sri Chinmoy explains that to understand compassion, we must first recognise it; and, to recognise it, we must first experience it. It is God’s compassion that is moulding us, guiding us and illumining us at every step of our journey through life. The more we cry to God for compassion, the more He inundates us. In return, Sri Chinmoy says, God asks only that we distribute this compassion to our fellow earth-travellers.ISBN 0-88497-050-7 / 64pp/ AUM Publications
HOW OFTEN DO WE EXPRESS the hope that by God’s Grace something significant will take place in our lives? Or perhaps we recognise that because of God’s boundless Grace our lives have already been blessed far beyond our imagination. In this small volume, the first in a new series focusing on the manifold ways in which God touches each and every life, Sri Chinmoy describes the constant flow of Grace from above and explains how we can become more receptive to it.
