In this episode you will hear from Sri Chinmoy’s book of collected stories entitled ‘Garden of The Soul.’ In it he writes, “Inside each of us there is a beautiful flower garden. This is the garden of the soul… With every lesson we learn from life, our soul garden grows and glows.”
I do hope that you enjoy the stories.
