Talk about looking on the bright side of life

Last modified October 10, 2019

In this short talk, Sri Chinmoy explains the importance of concentrating on the bright side of life and letting go of the past. Only by doing this can we cultivate happiness and look forward to a better future.

Oftentimes we feel the weight of our mistakes; they make our life feel heavy and do not allow us to move forward. In this small, extemporaneous talk, Sri Chinmoy shares with us a key aspect of his philosophy of life – to always look forward!

The Goal is Won

Your days of orphan-sorrows
Are behind you
Not beside you.
Why, then, do you
Helplessly cry?

Your days of excellence-joys
Are ahead of you
Not beside you.
Why, then, do you not
Immediately run and declare:

– Sri Chinmoy


“Be happy and remain happy.
Forget about your mistakes,
Even the very last one” —
So says my Lord Supreme.

– Sri Chinmoy

We hope you enjoy this inspiring talk, and that it might serve as an added inspiration in your daily life and journey to the ever-transcending perfection-goal!
