All-Local NY Sri Chinmoy Students Performance, August 2013

Last modified October 12, 2013

A recording of the All-Local NY Sri Chinmoy Students Performance from 27 August 2013. The performance features a group of singers and musicians belonging to the NY Sri Chinmoy Centre performing a medley of arrangements of Sri Chinmoy’s songs on the theme of “to play with God.”

Paree Atkin arranged the songs and directed the performance.

Here are the lyrics of some of the songs:

Never Say No

“Never say no, Never say no, O never say
When God’s Compassion-Eye
Desires you to play.”

-Sri Chinmoy

“God, how can I please You most, by praying or by meditating?”
“My child, you can please Me most
Only by playing with Me!”

-Sri Chinmoy

“I shall play with everyone on the day I play with You.
I shall blend in every heart on the day I blend in you.”

-Sri Chinmoy

“Let me play with God before I forget.
Let me cry with the poor earth before I forget.
Let me fly with my flying soul before I forget.
Let me become Heaven-Light and earth-pride before I forget.”

-Sri Chinmoy

“God is ready with you to play.
Do not delay, do not delay, do not delay.”

-Sri Chinmoy

“How to start? Devotedly.
When to start? Immediately.
Why to start? To see the Face of Truth here and now.
To be the Grace of God, always now.”

-Sri Chinmoy

And here are also some quotes from Sri Chinmoy’s writings on the same subject:


“Play, play, play!
You are supposed to play
Only with your heart’s
Mounting sacred flames.”

-Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, Part 166, Agni Press, 1992

“Yesterday I saw you playing
With your mind’s confusion.
Today I see you playing
With your heart’s peace-profusion.”

Sri Chinmoy, Silence Speaks, Part 4, Agni Press, 1994


“If you dare to play
With your troubles,
They will fail to torture you.”

Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, Part 5, Agni Press, 1998


“You will never be a loser
If you allow your ever-present Friend,
To play with you every day.”

Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, Part 86, Agni Press, 1984


“If you discipline your life,
God not only will play with you,
But also will teach you how to play
Most soulfully and most satisfactorily
The way He Himself plays
In His cosmic Game.”

Sri Chinmoy, Union And Oneness, Agni Press, 1976


“Your soul knows how to play
With God’s Smiles.
Your heart knows how to play
With man’s cries.
Now you should try
To know how to play
With your life’s perfection.”

Sri Chinmoy, Ten Thousand Flower-Flames, Part 42, Agni Press, 1982


“Every day if you sing and play
With your own heart-child,
Then God will garland you
Most proudly.”

Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, Part 11, Agni Press, 1999


“Now that you have opened
Your heart’s sealed door,
God will proudly invite you
To play with Him.”

Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, Part 88, Agni Press, 1984


My Lord says to me,
“My child, I am really waiting
For you to come and play with Me
The way you used to.
Why do you not come
To play with Me anymore?

Sri Chinmoy, Seventy-Seven Thousand Service-Trees, Part 7, Agni Press, 1998


“You and God always play together.
When you win you cry with your soulful gratitude, and when God wins
He cries with His blessingful Pride.”

Sri Chinmoy, You, Agni Press, 1973


Question: When am I God’s eternal child?

Sri Chinmoy: “You are God’s eternal child when you can sincerely feel at every moment that God is also an eternal Child. First you have to want to be His Eternity’s child-partner. Then you have to feel that God Himself is an eternal Child who is playing with you all the time in His Eternity’s Heart-Garden. You have to feel that He is not only playing with you but also that He is always eager to play with you, smile with you, dance with you and cry with you and for you.”

Sri Chinmoy, Niagara Falls Versus Children’s Rise, Agni Press, 1987

We hope that these song-poems and the musical interpretation given by Sri Chinmoy’s students will be of inspiration and service in your inner life of aspiration. Thanks for listening!
