Who is a true spiritual guide

A real spiritual master: your private tutor

That I am the Disciple of a true spiritual master is the best thing that has happened to me in my life. I can still clearly remember the day in April 1989 when I was sitting in the back seat of a car, suddenly feeling inner peace and my headache completely disappeared. We were on the way to a hotel in the Arabellapark in Munich, where my spiritual master Sri Chinmoy wanted to honor a Nobel laureate in physics by lifting him up on a platform with one arm.

I was standing in the lobby of the hotel when I noticed that the man in the beige corduroy suit standing three or four meters from me must have been the Nobel laureate in physics. I didn't mean to be disturbing and I was about to leave when Sri Chinmoy suddenly turned the corner. The only thing I could do without bothering me was to move just a short distance to the nearest corner of the lobby.

I had my back to the wall. Sri Chinmoy looked me in the eye and then it was done. I felt wonderful and for minutes I was flooded with inner peace with an enormous intensity that I had never experienced before. From that moment on, I knew for a fact that Sri Chinmoy was my spiritual master - the one I was meant to be. In addition, through the inner peace that I had previously felt in the car, I realized that a real master can also let inner peace flow into you without him standing in front of you if he concentrates on you.
