Phoolanjaya from Auckland, New Zealand offers two soulful recitations of aphorism-poems by Sri Chinmoy. The poems are mostly selected from the Seventy-Seven Thousand Service Trees collection, which Sri Chinmoy began in 1998, and in which he had written 50,000 poems by the time of his passing in 2007.
Dear listeners, we recently received two tracks of a wonderful recitation of Sri Chinmoy’s poetry. Phoolanjaya Beale, a student of Sri Chinmoy from New Zealand, recites with a wonderful soulfulness.
These are some notes from Phoolanjaya about this project:
“Both “Silence Descends” and “Children of the Supreme” are arrangements of Sri Chinmoy’s aphorisms. They are mostly selected from the Seventy-Seven Thousand Service Trees collection, although some are from other collections. The first one I did (Silence Descends) was a challenge to myself to learn and perform 50 aphorisms. I wanted the subjects and themes to flow and for it to have a feeling of telling a story. It has been a truly enriching experience learning these beautiful aphorisms! Gratitude.”
We hope you enjoy these selections from Sri Chinmoy’s poetry.
