Last modified January 31, 2023

Venu’s Group performs Dyulok Chariye at Aspiration-Ground on August 26, 2008. Dyulok Chariye is Sri Chinmoy’s longest song based on a poem written by Sri Chinmoy in 1945 in honour of Sri Aurobindo’s birthday (b. 15th August, 1872).

First Stanza from Dyulok chariye nara narayan “August 15th, 1945”

August 15th, 1945

God in human form
Descends from Heaven today
To touch and feel
The breath of earth-dust.
Comrades, His Victory
Let us proclaim, casting aside
All our world-responsibility-obligations.

– Sri Chinmoy, August 15th 1945 from India, my India. Mother India’s summit-prides, Agni Press, 1997 at Sri Chinmoy Library

VenuDear listeners, today we dedicate this post to Venu, our dear brother from San Francisco, who passed away on July 11, 2013.

I had the privilege of knowing Venu personally, and singing in his singing group from 1990 to 1993. Venu was a special person, always striving to transcend himself, challenging his own capacities. He was always training hard, whether running, swimming or cycling. His intensity was legendary, but also his kindness, sweetness and candour.

This is a recording of a performance by Venu’s Group, almost a year after Sri Chinmoy’s Mahasamadhi (Oct. 11, 2007). It is a special performance because it is a performance of Sri Chinmoy’s longest song, Dyulok Chariye, which has more than 200 lines. It is a poem that Sri Chinmoy composed in the 1940’s, while living in the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry, India.

We hope you enjoy this performance by Venu’s Group.

  1. It was a great privilege knowing Venu while he worked in Perfect Health-Joy-Song. He beautifully reflected the heart of Sri Chinmoy’s teachings. Thank you for this lovely recording.

  2. Hi, Astika!

    Sometimes, during a live performance, whoever is doing sound will experiment a little with varying amounts of echo/reverb/delay and other effects. Therefore, the change in the sound. I checked and did not find anything unusual.Thanks anyhow!

    with gratitude, Kamalakanta

  3. As I listen there appears to be a brief echo or overlapped portion in the recording about 5-7 minutes into the song. You might want to check it… Astika

  4. Thanks Kamalakanta for making this recording available. Venu’s sisters have requested a tape of his singing and I will give them the link to this broadcast. Thanks so much… Astika
