Grace

How often do we express the hope that by God’s Grace something significant will take place in our lives? Or perhaps we recognise that because of God’s boundless Grace our lives have already been blessed far beyond our imagination.

In this small volume, the first in a new series focusing on the manifold ways in which God touches each and every life, Sri Chinmoy descibes the constant flow of Grace from Above and explains how we can become more receptive to it.

Forgiveness

Mistakes are an inevitable and perhaps necessary part of human life. Sometimes we do the wrong thing consciously, at other times unconsciously. No matter whether our mistakes are grave or minor, there comes a point when we need forgiveness­—from God, from others whom we have hurt, even from ourselves.

In this book Sri Chinmoy offers us his illumining guidance on how we may seek the divine Forgiveness that will not only transform our lives, but grant us the promise of a cloudless new beginning.

Compassion

Our very existence on Earth depends on God’s Compassion, yet its meaning eludes us. Sri Chinmoy explains that to understand Compassion, we must first recognise it; and, to recognise it, we must first experience it. It is God’s Compassion that is moulding us, guiding us and illumining us at every step of our journey through life. The more we cry to God for Compassion, the more He inundates us. In return, Sri Chinmoy says, God asks only that we distribute this Compassion to our fellow earth-travellers.

Love

Love enlarges our hearts. To offer love to another human being, to the world, or to God is the greatest gift of life.

Love enriches every moment, every act. And, because we are only human, we long to be loved in return. Alas, human love is fleeting; the world is unloving. Only in God do we find a Beloved whose love for us is eternal and unconditional. Sri Chinmoy vividly describes how God loves us more than we can ever imagine. Through his eyes, we begin to fathom the true nature of divine love.

THE WORLD BEYOND

What should we do when someone we love dies? Who can console us? What happens when someone passes beyond the Curtain of Eternity into death, the World Beyond.

The World Beyond may be unknown, but it is not unknowable. In this insightful and uplifting book, Sri Chinmoy shares inner secrets and profound insights about what happens after death.

Sri Chinmoy offers solace and a new realm of hope in the face of death. He explains that the afterlife does exist, and that it is not something alien, to be feared, but a normal and natural experience that everyone shares.

This book contains priceless wisdom about this world and the World Beyond, and offers deep consolation and inspiration.

On Wings of Silver Dreams

With their prophetic messages, dreams can offer us deep inner wisdom. They may foretell the future, reveal the solution to a problem or give us a spiritual experience. We are healed by dreaming of a beloved friend or family member. How can we decipher dreams that come to us?

Sri Chinmoy guides us through the confusing labyrinth, teaching us to understand the significance of some common dreams, and to gain some control over the kinds of dreams we have.
