The renowned Bengali novelist and journalist Mani Sankar Mukherji spent several days in New York in late September and early October meeting and talking with Sri Chinmoy.

During his final visit to Aspiration- Ground on Oct. 2, the author called his visit a pilgrimage, saying “I never realized that in this city of New York there is so much love, so much affection, so much bhakti.”

He called Sri Chinmoy a spiritual treasure that he and the Master’s students share, saying he was taking half the treasure home with him and leaving the other half in New York.
